I think I have tried it all and I just can not get the wheel tape to look good, I stand back and look at it and its just wavy and terrible looking.. Do you guys have any secrets of the install to make a perfect circle?

You could try removing the wheel and laying it flat. It will probably be easier to apply "perfectly" like that.

Slow, and easy. Use a mixture of water and liquid soap while installing it. You can "float" it around a bit, then press the solution out, and it'll dry in place.
It'll never look good enough to you. I put it on my FZ1, and was frustrate

I will tell you one thing though... the stuff could withstand a nuclear explosion. I had mine on for 2 season and decided I wanted to paint my rims. well, It was the hardest thing in life to try and get off... what a PITA!

So beware... once its on, please dont plan on taking it off. LOL

You guys should check out these [url]http://www.rhok.com.au/wheel%20lights.htm[/url]. I'm not really into mods or bling but I reckon these would great for night time riding and wow factor.
