Will the rims be good for tubeless tyres or should I change them to be on the safer side? There are no bends or dents that I can see.
Rims can be checked for perfect roundness on a balancing machine. They place a pointer on the lip and it tells if any deformation is there. Another point to look for is rust, specially near the valve hole. If your rim doesn't have these issues, then you can install tubeless on the existing rims.

If in case you are changing the rim, make sure to mount it on a balancing machine and make sure no eccentricity is there. A batch with defective rims had come, which were wobbly right out of the factory. So please make sure to check them before purchasing any rim.

I also got Goodyear Ducaro Hi Miller for my alto. Costed me 2300 per tyre, got all 5. My old mrf zvts were full of punchers and were getting hard and deformed causing bubbling in the car but they lasted for 41000 kms. Also got chrome valves with 2 year warranty for 500 additional. Paid via card and the total amount of 12000 included 2% card charges, balancing alignment.
So far they look good. Have been given 2 year sidewall cut guarantee too with buyback option and 5 year warranty.
