I have been to the site a few time, IMHO the stripes they provide are way to wide. The Fila stripes are very thin, and look pretty nice. I just did a set of gloss black 5 spokers with red about 1/4 " wide, to me thats about as wide as I would want to go. I'll send you a pic if you want.
i bought a pack of the multi-color plumbers tape. i think it was .99 for red/green/blue/white/yellow. i used the red on my black rims and it looks awesome. (imho).
i used clear nail polish over the area where the ends of the tape meets. so far it has held up to 135mph.

Is the plumber's tape you used reflective at night?

i found the triples on e-bay. a guy in Italy makes them. here is his e-mail: [email protected]
his english is a little weak but i had my Italian/English translation dictionary handy and we got it done.
i think they where like 300 bucks. they went right on, no problems at all.
I'm just a poor gummint working stiff, not a rich guy like you. Oh and the new motorcycle I'm buying will suck up most of my free cash. I'll add a piece here, a piece there, vented clutch cover, some new functional bit's such as clutch slave cylinder, upgrade the brake system. I don't want to be one of those guys that adds a whole bunch of CF bling just because they can. In it's own crack like way, it's somewaht gaudy and overdone if you do too much.
