Pro Grip Wheel Tape
The tape looks great and is relatively easy to apply once you get the hang of it. would recommend buying two rolls of tape they give you just enough for each side of your rims....so not much room for error.

2 rolls not necessary
After reading some of the other reviews, I was scared that I would need to order two. Other reviewers say that you CAN and WILL mess up, and they give you no extra tape. Based on the reviews I thought this was down to the millimeter and there was zero play or room for error, literally.
In reality, by the time I finished I had at least a foot left, which may not seem like much, but if you don't mess up too severely, you at least have a few spare inches on each wheel to get the gap to close properly. A tip I recommend and did myself is that instead of trying to get the edges to match up perfectly, just have one overlap the starting edge slightly. This kit comes with an applicator. If you have front and rear stands (which I did) you can simply feed the tape, hold the applicator firmly in place and spin the wheel around by hand. Use scissors while you are still holding the applicator, and snip the end, and then overlap the starting point by an inch or two.
If you do each wheel fairly well, you don't need a second roll and you may end up with a few inches to a foot left of tape to spare. If you are anticipating peeling all the tape from a wheel for a do-over, you won't make it. As for my rim size, this was done on a 2013 White Kawasaki 300. It is good and reflective.

The picture is my review . If it is your first time to apply this tape then you need to buy one extra . because you cannot make it perfect from first time .

The Tape overall is good quality but the kit dont bring enough. if you are not perfect the first time there is no room for errors.

I bought the white one for my black bike with black rims and at night the rim tape is so reflective that it almost looks like a bike from the movie "Tron". It isn't blinding just extremely visible. There is enough tape to do both sides of 2 17" rims like they say and I had enough left over (about 10") to correct any minor problem areas. I would and have recommended this to friends if they want to add something to the look of their bike or just increase its visibility at night.

Not as easy as it looks
Installation is not easy. Make sure you buy 2 or 3 because you'll make mistakes.

Fairly simple application, amount included is lacking
The applicator included made for pretty simple installation. I was a little disappointed that more tape wasn't included in the role though. It mentions that you just need one role to do both sides of both wheels, I'm sure this was true but also keep in mind that as with using any kind of product like this we're bound to screw it up the first time. The amount of tape included leaves literally no margin for error so get it right the first time or buy two of them.
