Pro Grip Wheel Tape
Looks Great, Can be tough to get on right though
The final result, depending on how well you applied it, looks excellent. The applicator can be a bit cheap and you might find yourself running low on tape in the end. The tape allows for probably about 1 wheel side's worth of mistakes. In the end, its worth the small headache is you're looking for a cheap wheel trim

Exactly what I wanted.
Purchased the blue tape (which is reflective!) for my ninja. Installation was simple enough, and the outcome what better than I expected. However, I did apply the tape under the recommended temperature (It was 30F-something outside) and as such it didn't want to stick right away using the applicator. Running a finger behind the applicator fixed this problem and also got rid of any air bubbles.

Good, but hard to install.
The tape looks amazing and is very reflective. That being said, its not the easiest thing to install. The tool they include definitely helps, but it is still tough. They say one pack is enough for all 4 sides, but you will mess up at least once. I highly suggest you get 2. Also, make sure it is above 60F when you put the tape on. I tried when it was about 55F, and the tape didnt stick very well, leaving bubbles. Very good product and looks amazing.

Extremely good adhesive on this tape.
This product was purchased for my GS Adventure. The applicator was not designed for the BMW wheel and had to be modified slightly to be used. The tape has an excellent adhesive. The length of tape supplied was enough for both sides of a 19" and 17" wheel with about 10" excess. In my opinion the reflective tape adds an additional safety feature to this bike when riding on the road.

As another reviewer mentioned, if you've never applied this tape before you should buy two rolls of tape to account for the learning curve in putting it on. Once you've figured it out it goes on easy.

Hard to apply but worth it.
The applicator did not work with my wheels. From the photos it looks like you need a rim with a sharp edge 90 degree angel. My rim is more rounded. I ended up wasting a bunch of tape and giving up on the wheels. I applied some to misc areas on the bike as straight lines.
I then decided to apply straight to the wheels without the applicator. I used my two thumbs and basically applied straight lines 1.5" at a time. At each 1.5" mark I would hold my thumb on the already applied part and with my other thumb pull taught and pull towards the new angle I wanted. By the time I got to the other side of the wheel I got much better at it.
I think I'm going to order another roll to get my front tire done.
I also really wish It was more sticky. Came off really easy when I was working with it - but when finished seemed to hold well. Let's see how it holds after riding and rain.
I like the look and will order more.

Applicator is everything
I have purchased other products out there but none ever had the applicator. The tool makes the product worthy. I just wish it came in varying widths as my rim has a larger outboard flange.
