Cyanoacrylate adhesives frequently leave a whitish residue when curing in an area without much air ventilation. I've seen this many times when using cyanoacrylates in enclosed areas on different kinds of surfaces. It's a residue, not a reaction, so there are no harmful effects (other than the appearance).

The glue you have used has reacted with either the clearcoat on the rim or the resin used in construction (whatever is the top layer). The reaction has clearly stopped now so it isn't going to get worse by itself but if you were being sensible you would have the area fixed properly, perhaps by a fibre repair specialist using the proper resins. An extra hole ...

It's also the rim being tubeless-compatible that's in question here. The tubeless bead on the tire is part of it, but if you took the same tire and put it on a non-tubeless rim, you could in most cases use any rim strip you want and it won't matter as much or at all. Tubeless tape is very thin. Sometimes if you put a conventional rim strip, which are mostly ...

I think the key thing to look for is that the product should explicitly mention tubeless compatibility. It probably doesn't matter if the product is tape or a one-piece rim strip like you linked as long as it's designed to be tubeless compatible. Bontrager has a one-piece rim strip that are designed exclusively for their own rims. Here is a link that's ...

You could use the linked rim tape with a tubeless ready tyre, but you'd have to use a tube since it's not tubeless tape. Tubeless tape typically has a sticky side and sticks to the rim causing an air tight seal. Schwalbe Tubeless Rim Tape would be the tubeless equivalent of the tape you linked. It's normal for a tubeless ready tyre to be a tighter fit (and ...
