Why are tubeless tires not seating?
Sometimes the tire is too stiff or too flimsy. Sometimes the shape of the rim keeps the tire bead from easily popping into its seat. But as long as there are no defects in the rim or tire, all that’s really happening is the air isn’t getting into the valve as quickly as it’s escaping from underneath the tire.

A tire with a regular bead will blow off the rim when inflated to higher pressures without a tube. So you MUST use a tubeless-specific tire if you want to ensure your safety while riding.
