I want to true my wheels but the michelin rim strip is so tight it is like it is shrink wraped to the rim. How do you get it off without tearing it?

You should probably replace the rim strips once you true your wheels in any case......That is the negative with Neutrons, but the only one I can think of. Great wheels...

If you have an old strip cut an 8" piece and loop it under the mounted strip then pull up. Using a loop also makes mounting a new strip much easier without damaging it.

...sort of a catch 22, you have to have an old strip first:)

If the edge of a spoke hole ever gets exposed, it can cause a flat. Might want to replace them .
