I have a new stan's olympic wheelset with included rim strips and folding hutchinson spider tubeless tires. I've followed the directions but I just can't get the tire area around the stem to seat. it seems impossible with how much the rim strip bulges there (yes I drilled out rim to 3/8"). the tire will inflate, but it deflates in 20 min and will burp air when I press on the sidewall. before this I tried using only the yellow tape and had the same issue. any ideas?

Are you sure your strip is seated evenly around the rim? Try removing the stip and strech the sucker as hard as you can when inserting the stem, it should reduce the amount of material in that secion and then install it all around as normal.
