Pro Grip Wheel Tape
Got this as a gift to put on my girls r3, shipped super fast and everything, but this product was a complete waste. It doesn't stick to the rim for more than 5 minutes, the applicator and directions make no sense whatsoever. I'll never go with progrip on anything other than a tank pad again.
***BEWARE OF THIS GARBAGE!***

This was a total waste of money. The "instructions" are worthless. The "applicator" is worthless. Absolutely no idea how you are supposed to put this stuff on. After 30 minutes of trying to figure it out, I just tossed it in the trash. Lesson learned and $15 wasted.

Applied it to my 2012 CBR1000RR. Worked flawlessly with the applicator.
A lot of people in the reviews complained of botched applications and the tape ripping or skewing. I avoided these issues with
1. I applied the tape on a very hot day, and left the roll of tape in the sun for a few minutes. It became very malleable and easy to work with.
2. I threaded the tape in the applicator and then throughout the procedure I had my thumb pushing the applicator from behind while at the same time applying pressure to the tape as it was coming out of the applicator and onto the wheel rim. This ensured for a proper alignment and adhesion.
There was enough tape to do both wheels on both sides, with about 6 inches leftover which I'll be keeping for touch-ups if needed.
Tape is very reflective and looks amazing!

Good product, could use a better applicator.
I like the way this tape reflects at night. Time will tell how long it'll stay on.

Just recently received this Pro Grip Wheel Tape. I think it's a little difficult to put on with just myself. For my first try, I did alright. I ripped the tape a few times and it wasn't even throughout the rim. I couldn't reach the whole rim without stopping and rolling bike. I recommend 2 people. 1 to hold and roll bike, the other to apply it. Honestly, I still love how it came out. I already bought another pack just to try it out again with someone else. Went out right after riding, received compliments and a lot of looks!! Don't worry about messing up the first time everyone, it peels off fast with a fingernail and it's only $20 for another roll. Good luck!

Good quality, but barely enough!
It was my first time putting on any sort of wheel tape but I was able to do both sides of two wheels and it looks good. It would be better if there was more tape left to re-do one of the sides. I would recommend getting two just in case you mess up because even if you mess up a little, you won't have enough tape left to do the job. Quality is good though and the color looks good.

CLEAN YOUR WHEEL
I made the mistake of just cleaning the surface that the tape went on and not the rest of the wheel, and the applicator rubbing the wheel knocked dust and grime under the tape and it wouldn't stick. MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN YOUR WHEEL AND TAKE YOUR TIME! As long as you do that it looks amazing and the reflective blue matches my blue bike perfectly. Wish it came with more tape though.

6" short on CRF250L
This tape looks great, goes on fairly easily to the CRF250L once you learn that the tool can bend.
Only down side is that it came up 6" short for my bike. (I had 2" of waste so it's actually 8" short.) Guess I should not have took the "Enough for both sides of two wheels" as truth and instead paid attention to the length. Lesson learned. I may just remove the tape from the other side of the rear tire, or I'll order another pack.
