Question about the DT Tubeless Kit. I just put the red rim strip on my rim and put a tire on it with a tube in it just to push the rim tape a little bit tighter onto the rim. When spinning my wheel and looking at my tire, it looked like the tire was not sitting straight on the rim. It was slightly going from left to right when rotating the wheel. When I removed the tire again, it seemed that I didn't put the rim strip perfectly straight on the rim. I redid the rim tape again and it looks really straight now, not sure if I can get it 100% straight since it's really hard to do (I also used the double sided tape btw to keep the strip attached to the rim).
Now my question is, if the rim tape is not 100% perfectly straight on the rim, will it 'wobble' my tire once it's set up tubeless? For those that have used the DT Swiss rim Strip, did you experience any of these issues or will it straighten itself all out? Thanks!
