I'm sorted out. Thanks

There's always this tubeless system. I used these in desert races. They're a total bitch to get mounted but they work on any existing tube-type rims. Not even terribly expensive: http://www.nuetech.com/

Nope, you need very narrow rims: 1.6"/2.15" vs. 2.5"/4.25" that the BMW uses (plus the rear is only available in 18" while the BMW has a 17").

This is fine for a mostly off road bike but would of course compromise the street handling.

I carried the spare tubes with anyway for worst case scenario

The spokes all connect to the rim in the centre. This would likely be a problem with lots of off-roadish bashing.

Ah, this thread is alive again!

I've seen these wheels discussed, but never seen them in person. For the OP I'd suggest checking out the Alpina tubeless wheels: they're tried and true.

Anyone out there?

Hoped a few well-heeled souls might have dabbled with the Kineo brand by now, the looks are just.. well you all have eyes - but I wondered about their off-road credibility.

They remind me of the R1200GS spoked tubeless wheels. I don't doubt their quality. Unfortunate about the price though. Drop the price by 50% and they would sell a lot of them.
