Wheel Rim Tape

Hi guys, just bought some wheel rim tape and wondering what is the best way to put them on? I saw some that came with an applicator to put them easily, but these didn't come with it. The other ones didn't have the color that I wanted. Thanks in advance.

It's best if you can take the wheels off the bike.

dont do it in our current weather. wait for it to get hot again.
im about to restripe my wheels, as the tape has come mostly off or been crudded up with many many miles and little to no cleaning

also, be sure to post pics when done. if you have the reflective tape, post pics with the flash on !

+1 to stands +2 to doing it with the wheels off.

The applicator is the bomb if you have the stands. I did both rims on Toni's bike in about 15 minuets a couple of weeks ago.
