  • Wheel tape or not...

    I'm not sure what color wheel tape to add to my new wheels.
    I would like to add the reflective type so at night they help to see me.
    These are my choices and poor quality of my drawing skills
    WHITE( obviously would be invisible in day light)

    SILVER

    TLR ORANGE

    RED

    BLUE

    NAVY

    I voted blue.

      Where is the button for not. I have never understood the desire to put tape on your wheels. Am I just old

        Orange would be nice, but you don't have any orange on your TLR. So I say go with red.

          I say red. I added reflective red wheel tape to my S and it looks great.

              Blue! (not the navy blue, the other one)

              If you wanted the night time visibility but not the "look" of rim tape, the white would work out nicely.

              I like rim tape... I had to fight the urge strongly not to add it to my new wheels. These are about the only wheels that could have made me NOT use it.

                    No tape would be my vote too, but it might improve visibility at night, so white would be the sensible option then.

                      Looking at the pics I start to lean towards either white or nothing now

                          Never. Especially on Marchesinis or Marvics.

                            Do the white if you want rim tape. That way it doesn't stand out
