Pro Grip Wheel Tape
Average product that adds a little something to your bike.
Have had the tape a little while now (3months) and the tape has held up fairly well, there are a few parts of the edge of the tape that's been pulled up/curled but is practically unnoticeable unless you're looking for it.
Much easier to install with two sets of hands. Bought this product over others because it was cheaper and came with the applicator (which sadly wasn't perfect as my rims have weights that misplace the applicator but patience got the job done with a fairly clean look).
It is not the most reflective tape on the market but it does give a nice look, it's an average product that gets the job done.

Not a good kit
bought this to add a bit of color to my rims on a BMW R 1200 RS. Waste of time and money . The applicator was not a good fit for the contours of the wheels on my BMW and the tap was not adequate by any stretch to make it around both sides of both wheels even if done by hand. The tape was pretty lame in truth and would not have held up ..... FWIW I have had a lot of experience installing pinstripes on cars, trucks and bikes but this particular kit was just not up to the Quality I was used to working with . The tool probably works on some bikes but was clearly no help on this one.

Good product, tough to apply
Overall a good product but it is tough to get in position and apply correctly. You may have to work with it a bit to get it in place.

Does exactly what it's supposed to
The tape does exactly what it says it does. The applicator tool does work, you just have to be patient. Do not rush this job. The tape doesn't stretch well and will tear if you try to pull it back up to replace it. So again, don't rush. I have the white tape and it is very reflective.
Install note: If you don't have experience with vinyl or stickers, here is one very important note on using it. Always clean the surface as best you can before use the tape. Wheels obviously get very dirty. Remove ALL the grime and then dry the surface before using the tape.

Purchased the white-reflective tape for my black rims. Might not be a large mod, but really does make a big difference to the overall appearance of the bike and I love it. As far as application goes, I was impressed. The tape is strong, yet forgiving if you need to readjust to make it straighter. The applicator that comes with takes a couple tries to figure out, but is rather easy and saved a lot of time. May not look perfect real close, but after taking a step back you can't tell at all and it really makes the wheels pop. It is VERY reflective at night so other vehicles can spot you when needed. I put this on both sides of both rims and still had a little left over for future use/replacing. Very impressed with such a small change. Great buy!

Great adhesive, and a tool, too!
I purchased this to put on my GSXR 750, and the adhesive was really strong. The tape was forgiving as far as putting it on and re-adjusting it. It comes with a tool to put it on the wheels.

You will be frustrated with this product. I bought it twice, don't be a fool like me. The first time was less than satisfactory, but I thought maybe I didn't clean the wheels well enough.
Application is extremely annoying. The applicator is useless. Trying to slide it down the inside of the wheel is impossible as the applicator isn't deep enough to keep pressure on the tape to keep it from sliding.
It took me more than $30.00 to realize that this was a mistake. Please keep your money.
The applicator actually needs to work and maybe if they gave you enough tape to make a mistake and still be able to cover both sides of two wheels. But, no. If you screw up, you're finished. You'll have to buy another one because you'll run out of tape. RUN AWAY!

Added visibilty and style, very difficult application
I love how eye-catching the tape is at night, and it certainly aids in visibility. The pink is more of a bright red though.
The installation is really painful. The applicator is useless, so I just ended up applying it with my hands and the outcome definitely isn't perfect. I'll be amazed if anyone could get these on in a perfect circle. To be honest I cringe a bit when I inspect some parts of the tires more closely. Definitely prefer the look when the bike's in motion.
The visibility and style is certainly nice, but be ready for a difficult installation. I'm a little surprised I was able to get it done.
