Gorilla Tape for rim tape? Sounds like the DH tire has bonded to the tape and then with the backing of the insert it can move far enough to overcome the glue. I’d use my Bead Dropper and a mallet to punch the tire bead under the insert and it should go. ——— I prefer the ride if a lighter casing with an insert over a double-wall without especially with enough air to avoid kissing the rim.  Certainly cheaper and less faff if you can find a tire-alone that you like to ride. I’m not racing anyone other than myself. But I will admit a reduced patience watching my more frequently flatting friends fix their tires. I’d rather deal with inserts at home.
