The vinyl is very cleanly cut and easy to apply. It helps if you do the job on a warm day or heat the tape and / or wheel first.
My method to apply the tape on my car wheels was as follows:
1. Clean and dry all the wheels
2. Work on each corner at a time
3. Jack up the corner so the wheel spins freely
4. Unpeel the entire length of tape and start it on the rim (choose the distance you want the tape from the rim)
5. Stick on a short length of tape at a time, working at the same point, rotating the wheel as you go
6. Do not leave the wheel at the same point and work around it because you will not keep the tape at a uniform distance from the rim
7. Overlap the new tape by 2 or 3 mm to allow for shrinkage
8. Cut the final short section of tape away from the wheel and apply it over the 2 free ends
Originally I removed a wheel at a time and cleaned it, and applied the tape, and refit the wheel. But this takes longer and the results are no better.
The important thing is to rotate the wheel so you are looking at it from the same angle all the time. That way you will have a professional looking job.
