Veloflex with Full Carbon Clinchers

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Veloflex with Full Carbon Clinchers

Does anyone use the Veloflex clincher tires with full carbon clincher rims? On some websites, it states that it is not recommend to use Veloflex clinchers with full carbon rims due to sharp edge on the carbon rim may cut into the side walls of the tire.

I would like to try them.
Cheers
