I use tubeless setups for winter nowadays (Hutchinson and Schwalbe tires). No punctures for the last two seasons with the exception of hitting a pothole hard and ripping up a major gash in the tire. If you have trouble with a tire being too tight you van either stretch them by hand, mount them for a while on another wheelset or heat them making them more supple (for example in a tumbler). I use veloflex in the summer and they are very supple to mount compared to many other brands in my experience.

The road tubeless sounds like a good idea for bulk winter training miles. Run low pressure for frost-heaves and pot holes, self-seal punctures, and still have potential to mount a tube if you must. My only concern would be that last part: mounting a tube.

Frigid winter temperatures lashing your bare hands while trying to wrangle a carbon-beaded tire is enough to make me consider trying the kevlar-beaded Bontrager tubeless variants. I have yet to hear any horror stories, and I've read quite a few reports that they hit their rated widths and then some.

Obviously, this is only an option if the OP decides to swap his wheels after all.

Why spend all this money on a great frame and then attach cheap tires???

I know ... it's a rhetorical question. :roll:
