There was significant sticky residue left on the rims that cleaned
up (with a little difficulty) with goo gone (or goof off).

This begs the question -- how safe/practical is it to use Tufo tape on non-Tufo tires? Its a given that it'll be marketed as being unsuitable for anything but Tufo tires, but they don't have a traditional base tape. Can a "normal" tubular be removed without pulling up the base tape?
