Oh, by the way, if it's an older tyre, you could just pull the base tape off, and use the tape on the clean surface of the tyre itself that was covered by the tape.
Make sure you pump the tyre hard, roll the wheel applying your weight on the wheel to 'seat' the tyre/tape. Leave to set for a few hours.

I stay with glue because once you've gone glue you can't go back. I made the mistake ONCE using tape over a previously glued rim and the tape will not come off. It took literally more than 10 hours of scrubbing w/ a wire brush and solvents to make a dent in the tape/glue matrix removal. I ran out of patience and ended up tossing the wheel. (It was quite worn).
Bottom line, don't mix and match....
