Wheel trim

I see some wheels with a paint trim. Is that a part of a special package? I'm thinking I'd like to trim the wheels on my white 2013.

Some folks are putting colored tape on their wheels. Other tape off the area and paint it. Buddy just got a Triumph 675R and it has a red stripe on the wheels. Very chic.

vinyl pinstripe from the auto parts store would probably work well.

I did mine earlier this year. It is reflective so very effective at night. Cost was $13 or so. Took about an hour to do both sides of both wheels. Very easy to do. I thought it might wash off but it hasn't. I also thought it might get destroyed when I had my wheel replaced, but that didn't touch it either.

Search for Wheel Tape - Revzilla.com is one source
