Try to roll the tire off the rim by pushing on it with the palms of your hands - face the wheel, grab the tire with both hands, and roll your hands forcefully forward. See if the chafing tape separates from the tire or the tire separates from the rim. If either one happens, you have a problem. Tire coming off the rim means re-glue. Chafing tape separating means time for a new tire, or at least applying rubber cement to the chafing tape.
