A quick question about skinny motorcycle wire wheels......I'm changing to new avons soon,do all wires have a "cover" tape running round the inside of the rim?....do I need to replace it before new tyres get fitted?......:)

I have seen several versions of the cover tape, old inner tubes cut into a ring, white linin tape and gaffa tape too, its just to protect the tube from chafing, My old man used to chuck a handful of talcum powder in there too,
