You can go tubless with any rim, the method just changes.  I would argue if you want to go tubless get a tubless rim or don't go tubless at all.  Most of the methods for making a tubless setup on a regular rim are so terribad/time consuming that it's not worth the time/effort or the few grams it saves.

Also, 100-150 is going to be tough to meet.  Plus, I need some more info:

Wheel size: 26", 650B, 29"?
Intended purpose: XC, Trail, AM, FR/DH/DJ?
Axel: QR, 15mm, 20mm?
Gearing: Single Speed or not?
Holes: 32 or 36
Color preferance?
