Anyone can advise how many time is the recommended layers of pacenti rim tape to go? I went with a layer and when I took out the tube I found the rim holes imprinted on the tube. The cause of the flat is however from the valve mechanism and nothing to do with the tube rubber.

Only concern is the more layer the more difficult to mount the tyre on.

Try thin layer of insulation tape and wrap once so You can still mount tire on.

Yea I went with the costly pacenti specific rim Tape something like an insulation tape. But it doesn't work as good as a normal rim tape especially on a single layer
