I have a set of HED Ardennes wheels that came with the newer HED black rim tape for tubeless or tube applications.  The tape has an adhesive side and a side with a crinkly plastic material.  Does anyone know if this should be a backing that is removed during installation or is this the normal 'non-adhesive' side for this tape?  It seems like it would need to remove in order to get some stretch to the tape, however, it doesn't seem to want to remove...?
