I'm using a wheelset with these rims on my 1969 raleigh pro. I know these aren't hook beaded but I used some kevlar beaded verdenstein tires with them, actually those were the only ones I could get on the rims. I took it for a test ride and right after I made the first turn the rear tube blew out leaving part of the beading off of the rim. When I looked at the tube I thought it was just a pinch flat but now I'm thinking it was a poor rim/tire combination. the tires were inflated to just under 100 psi. Would a wire bead make more sense? any specific tire recommendations?
