Pro Grip Wheel Tape
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.

Works good but...
Well the Pro Grip wheel tape works amazingly! But... That's if you can get it right the first time. When they say there's enough for both sides of two wheels they mean that sparingly. As in do not make any mistakes putting it on. The applicator works nice once you get the hand of it. I'm rating it very mediocre for this reason. It works good and all, but for about $15 you'd figure they could give an extra few feet since it costs roughly like 25 cents to produce a roll... All in all the tape does what it says it'll do, looks good. But if its you're first time I'd reccomend getting two rolls because you will mess up. And don't even attempt without a stand haha

The tape was hard to put on even with the tool.. Very uneven and overlapping. Waste of money

Nothing special but gets the job done
Just put this on yesterday and overall, like the title says...it's OK. I barely had just enough to do both tires on both sides but the applicator tool is nice. The tape does feel a little cheap however and I'd be surprised if it lasts over six months. It does look nice on my bike though and the color is slightly darker than I expected (green) but matches the kawi green pretty well.

Nice touch for the rims
The rim tape was a little tricky to put on at first. It stretched a few times while placing it around the rim. Luckly I was able to spare a few of the peices and finished the job. I wish there would have been just a bit more. Other then that it looks great!
