It will work, but you will never be able to repair the tire, if you get a flat. Paint remover will take off glue. (use gloves)......The rim has to be almost as clean as a new rim before you use the tufo tape.
Acetone works great for removing glue. I've heard that Tufo tape will not release well from the base tape on non-Tufo tires, tearing it off the tire. I really can't see any reason to use the stuff when a bottle of Conti or Panaracer glue costs a fraction, is easy (maybe not easier) to apply and presents no problems with removal.
