    I am planning on switching from Fast Tack to Tufo tape, and
    I'm wondering: do I have to remove my old glue residue or
    can I lay the tape down on top of it?

    Thanks, Billy Andrews

    Using two disparate types of adhesive in combination will
    not yield as strong a bond as using a single type properly
    applied. I've never tried the tape myself, or Fast Tack.
    I've always used Continental cement, which works well, and
    can be easily removed from rims with lacquer thinner and
    scotchbrite pads if necessary.

    I use the Tufo tape and so far it's been flawless. I suggest you remove any remnants of old glue with a solvent and start with a clean rim.
