Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I have a BMC RoadMachine02 that can accommodate a 32c tire max. I want to put a good but light tubeless tire that will be used mostly on pavement but can still be used on some not-so-gnarly gravel/dirt roads.

Suggestions?

How wide are your rims? Anything wider then 21mm inner rim is going to make a 32c cross tire more like a 34c. Clement and panaracer makes nice tubeless gravel tires, or any semi slick cross tire. I've been using conti's speed cross with tubes for about 2 weeks and they roll really well on pavement and have been good in the woods as long as there's no mud. I used tufo flexus dry plus tires all fall training on the road and woods and they roll nice and last long for a cross tire but it is tubular.

The Novatec rims on the bike have an inner width of 22mm. They make my current Panaracer 28c tires balloon out to 32mm with plenty of clearance to spare.

At 32C, you might not need a dedicated tubeless tire. Try "ghetto tubeless".

Have use Hutchinson Sector 32 Tubeless on my new Cannondale SuperX - so far been awesome. Having come from riding road biking for last 25 years and looking at a change with a slower pace, longer distance type or touring on good/bad concrete roads. The experience been awesome - petty damn light for a 32c tyre and measure about 32.8mm on a 19mm internal tubeless rim. U might want to try the Schwable 30C tubeless?

Specialized has three tires in 32mm that are tubeless or 2bliss.

Schwalbe S-one gets good reviews, 30 width. Now may be called g-one speed.

If mostly pavement I would use the Michelin Jet not the Mud 2. I use the Mud 2 for gravel but the Jet tread will roll faster on pavement.

I'd vote for the schwalbe s-one (g-one speed). On wide rims mine measure 31mm, have been absolutely bulletproof for a season of mostly road, but plenty of fire road and singletrack. Durability has been phenomenal, and the performance was very good for a large tire.
