Default Wheel tape

Who has put wheel tape on before? How hard is it to apply, how resilient is it, etc?
Any info that you may have to share is appreciated. Ty

The stickers that go around the edge of the rim to make the colored strip.

it's pretty durable, and not hard to do, just clean the rim with rubbing alcohol first, and it sticks real well.

I've used pinstriping paint before to do the same thing. spin the wheel, and touch the brush to the side of the rim, done, and as long as you don't shake like a crackhead, it'll be even all the way around.

What's the point of quoting every post and not giving any input?

Some kits have "roller aplicators" so you're less likely to make mistakes.
