    Got a pair of Stan's Flow rims in white on clearance...but I hate white and its an added 20 grams.

    I've used aircraft stripper before but it's effectiveness really depends on the paint/ powder coat being removed. Anyone have experience with Stan's white powder coat?

    yes, i have seen powder coat peel off with tubeless tape. Ive noticed it when there is an excess of sealant under the tape - which is also apparently causing the tire to loose pressure and not re-seal. ive seen this on stans rims, and many specialized/dt rims.
