What color wheel stripes??

Recommended Posts

effzee07
Hi All! I have the gray bike with the blurple wheels on it. I have always been a fan of adding reflective wheel stripes to my bikes, and removing the factory orange reflectors by the wheels. However, on this one I'm stuck! not sure what color would look good on it. Anyone got any ideas or pics of theirs?

Sometime did yellow, which I thought looked good on the blue wheels.

I would not add wheel stripes to blue wheels.

I like the idea of wheel tape but I prefer the black rims by themselves. I might consider it if there was black reflective tape? But I agree I like the look of the blue rims like they are without the tape.

Yeah this is a tough one. If it were me, I would probably either do blue or white wheel tape. A bright green also MIGHT look good on the blue wheels...but I dunno. I might end up getting a white FZ07 though, so I'd probably do either white or red stripes.

It is easy for me. I have a red bike, so I am planning on doing red tape.

Same for me my bike is red so red tape will be,I might go with the customtaylor33 red set little pricey but you get what you paid for.

You can get reflective black rim tape. It would look the best imo. Not really noticeable but still reflects at night.

I'd stick with neutral colors; the two you picked would be good. You just have to decide how reflective you want to be. The black doesn't seem to reflect as much as the white/silver.

Oh wow, i didn't even know there was black tape...that looks great! I love the gray/blue bike, but it would be hard to match my stuff with it. Most of my gear and tastes point more towards white/gray/black, so the white bike would match everything I have much better. The black tape on the white bike would be super stealth on already black wheels, but the white tape would POP like crazy. hmmm

Thank you. One roll that covers both sides of both wheels for $10 is not bad. I do suggest taking the wheels off to put the tape on.

I did the high viz yellow, but guessing from the avatar you don't like the blue and yellow combo. I'd post a pick but cant remember my photobucket password.

By the way this is the tap without reflection on the Blurple rim.

I think I'm sold on doing this to my bike now. Is the applicator easy to use?

I did not use it
Why? Just a personal preferance? And I'm assuming you used to 7mm and not the 5mm, correct?
