If you don't see the white threads, it aint done yet.  I rode back from TN one day with a 15-18" strip, 1.5 inches or so wide.  I was in a hurry, I figured if I got home faster, the better.  Pretty impressive that it held together at 100 plus with about 1/16" of material held air under that strain.  Anything less your a WIMP!  Worse thing was, I wanted to do a burnout video prior to swapping tires.  Oh well, this set will fry at the end!
