I have a set of these wheels on the way...Do I need to install rim tape on them before use?

Thanks

Rim tape, or VeloPlugs. Choose one.


It isn't likely that they'll come with rim-tape, although maybe your seller is really really nice. Ask em if in doubt.

Isn't 'UST rim tape' an oxymoron?
There seems to be a change of heart at Mavic. The last attribute of UST is airtight; either by tape or by hole-less rim inner bed. So UST valve, UST tape, UST rim, UST tire and UST licensed shape to other companies to use "UST".
