Oh..So it was exactly opposite to what I thought. Maybe it is the lesser ability to flex that is causing the issue, then.

iRaghava where are you? We are waiting for your story.

Really?
No wonder Run flat tyres are prone to bubbles. I feared that moving to regular tubeless would result in even more bubbles as compared to run flats that have the stiffest walls.

The softer sidewalls (comparatively) of the tubeless, would have more flex which would absorb the shock mildly without letting it affect the tyre.
