I just purchased my first pair of "aero" wheels. The floor of the rim has a series of approximately 1/4 inch diameter holes to allow access to the heads of the nipples, which are seated in the "V" shaped inner diameter of the rim. What sort of rim strip will cover these holes without being extruded through them and causing tube failure?

What you described is a typical double-walled rim. They're all like that. A standard fabric rim strip (such as Velox) will cover the holes just fine.
