I've been running road tubeless for about 10 years and I wouldn't do Gorilla Tape for anything over 40-45psi. Honestly, the yellow tape that was on there (probably Stans), may have looked bad, but unless there were holes in it, it was probably fine. The only problem I've ever run into with proper tubeless tape is at higher pressures, some tape get dimples where the spoke holes are, which makes installing new tires a problem getting the bead to seat up on the rim. What I've started doing is wrap one layer, cut it, then wrap a second layer. When I change tires, I only have to replace the top layer of rim tape. That being said, some rim tapes, such as HED, holds up really well and that's not necessary.
