    For everybody's information, rubber rimtapes only work on rims with the nipples on the tirebed not for these kind of rims. You will eventually always pump the rubber rimtape through the holes in the rim, destroying it. It is better to use a high pressure rim tape, i reccommend the one from swalbe from experience.
