Rear is more susceptible to punctures as most of your weight is over the rear, so more pressure on it.

Just go tubeless. I got a stans kit for £40, but you can get it cheaper, and you won't have to worry about punctures either!

I bought the standard 26" kit and fitted it to my Stans Crest 29" wheels without drama. Don't think it matters too much to be honest as long as your spoke holes are covered it will seal!
