I just did a set of RD 28” tires on my iver. Step be step.
1. Order a set for $300
2.sand the rim where the tire and rim meet.
3. Soak tires in a hot bath of water.
4. While soaking, apply bead of contact cement onto rim.
5. Dry tire and quickly slip it on the rim. May need screwdriver to get it on. Check for tire alignment.
6. Inflate to 50 psi and let dry.
Hope this helps!

Not as far as I'm aware. Instructions on latest packaging state: Clean rims, apply tape to rim, put on tyre flat, partially inflate, centralize tyre, remove backing film and fully inflate. No mention of any glue.
I've had no problems in use (so far) @GiovanniLiCalsi, although I’ve not tried it with RD tyres, only tubs.

Found this on the net....

Velox Jantex Belgian Tubular Tape protects tube from spoke/nipple/rim puncture. Increases bond strength between tire and rim. One roll of Tubular tape will do two 700c rims. Must be used in conjunction with tubular glue.

This is the latest Jantex packaging.
Not sure if they still make the product in Belgium, I always thought Velox was a French company, as it says "depuis 1903".
I 've never personally tried the 'Tufo' tape, I'm sure it's just as good!
This works for me.....

No mention of using supplementary glue, although if you're fond of the "belt and braces" approach to life I guess it wouldn't do any harm.
An older riding buddy doesn't use tape or glue on his chainless Columbia, running modern tubs on antique wood rims. In his opinion, modern tubs use such high pressures (I’m currently running a set at 145 psi/10 bar) that this is sufficient to hold tyres onto the rim without any adhesive being used. I personally wouldn't feel comfortable doing this, but he never has any problems, although he does weigh significantly less than myself!
