I want reflective rim tape for my R3 but...

I'm having a hard time finding a nice silver that actually sticks to the wheel! I've cleaned it repeatedly with alcohol so the surface is nice and clean but for whatever reason, I've tried two different brands of reflective rim tape and they just won't stick!

Can anyone offer a place that sells a good quality rim tape and any suggestions for how to install it properly?

I use this place and the reflectivity is amazing. Not sure about silver but their product is good to go and they are legit if they have what you need. I have no affiliation with them, just a happy customer.

Gizmo and red_86 like this.

Just an old guy that finally got over his need for speed and decided to slow down and enjoy the ride.

The best sticky for automotive is the 3M double sided tape. If you can find some reflective striping that claims to use 3M tape, it'll work. That's what automakers use for trimming and fake vents, stuff like that. It lasts through all weather scenarios.
