The Hutchinson Bulldog tire was one of if not the worst tire I've ever used. They came stock on my Giant Trance a few years ago. I rode them for a few rides and then recycled them! They were too square of a profile so when you leaned over on them they lost grip and washed out. I replaced them with some Michelin tires with a better tread profile and tire shape.
My tires were 26" x 2.1 not the 2.3 shown on Chainlove.
Keep in mind that is my opinion but I experiment with at least 10 different mountain bike tire sizes and types during the year. I'm a tire junky.

I know because I have them from CL and they don't have the tubeless ready imprint on the side. I also tried to mount them to a airtight rim (Kysriums) and they wouldn't hold air even with a whole lot of wasted sealant.
With the Stan's rubber rim strip you mnay have better luck than I did. Consider that if these are not tubeless ready then they do not have the sidewall or bead reinforcement that would be part of a tubeless ready tire. Therefore it is a weaker tire and you may be pushing your luck with burping your tire. Bad news.

You guys sure these are Tubeless Ready? The ones I bought aren't. They are not wire bead either. WTF?

Can you guys please get the description to these tires right?
They aren't wire bead and based on the set of Bulldog CX tires I got from chainlove they aren't tubeless ready either. At least they aren't labeled as such.

I'm stoked to try my Mavic wheels as a tubeless set up with those Bulldog tubeless ready cyclocross tires! sick!
