40i wheel with 2.6 tires?

I'm currently running 2.8 WTB Ranger tires with tubes on my hardtail and my rims have 40 mm internal width. I want to make the switch to tubeless and the Rangers aren't compatible. Also, sometimes the 2.8s feel a bit huge, especially when ascending. If I were to run 2.6 Minions would the tire tread be too "stretched out" with my 40 mm rim?

Thanks for the help

According to WTB Ranger product page, all models are TCS so no need to wait...

Found this where Nobl tried 2.5WT on their 38i rims... 2.6 on 40i looks viable.
