Thanks for the inspiration! Ordered a couple of different shades of blue since the price was right. Love the results!

Just ordered the Orange Dayglow - looking forward to installing (and hiding some chips in my PC from the tire shop -___- ). Thanks for the DIY

I assume these wouldn't stay on if you get new rubber on your rims...? My guess is the tire machine will rip them right off.

More than likely they would get damaged. But they are so cheap and dont take much time to put on, i plan to just do it again after I get tires.

Yes, just plan on doing it again. If you have PC rims make sure you go to a tire shop that deals with PC regularly or the edge will get chewed up. Just had a bad experience with that and my PC. If you can get the shop that powder coated the rims to mount the new tires that's even better. That's what I plan on doing for my next set.

Mine is reflective red...looks more red out of the light and more orange in the light, just like my IOM paint. I don't have any pics at the moment but I could provide link, where I bought it, if you are interested.

Definitely looks better than an all black wheel. Good job!

Is it necessary to get a pinstripe applicator so it's straight?

Nope not required... If you take your time you can get them perfectly straight... Just apply a little bit at a time and try not to let the other end stick to anything else.
The ones I ordered (think they are the same as OP) were only so long so it took two or three to cover all the way around the rim. I got the top half of the rim done, moved the vehicle slightly to make it easier for the other half.

Yeah, just do it by hand, do the top half of the rim, move the car, do the other half.
