I use Velox tub tape, which you'd be able to get in most shops, I know that I bought some from Evans once.
It's just superduper double-sided tape - and you get exactly enough for two rims on a roll - not a mm more, not a mm less.
You just have to stand on the tub and give it a good old heave-ho to stretch it before putting it on the rim. You have to be a bit handy cos you want to get it on nice and true, not all over the shop, and its a bit of a game, but a damn site easier than glue.
