Can I put gravel tires on a mtb rim? Tubeless?

So the rear wheel on my gravel bike is getting beat up and will need to be replaced soon. I have a number of extra mtb wheels (eg, Stan’s flow Ex). I am pretty sure they will fit the bike, but will the mtb rim work with a tubeless gravel tire (35 or 38)?

Yes, I run this currently. My singlespeed wheelset doubles as my gravel “fast” wheelset.

Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the only issue is running too high of a pressure. The mtb wheels aren’t made to deal with that.

I think a flow might be too wide for a gravel tire/bike. How wide is the rim? Mm?
