would look better if you did the insides properly, instead of just folding it over like you have imo either cut the flaps, or get some more and do the insides

Nice write up Mat.

You make it sound so easy when of cause it takes a sh!t load of time and loads of patience

Last but not least if anybody else does something similar please find a helper with asbestos fingers

Good write up mate, it'd look better if you did the inside of the rim too

ha ha.....

ianFRST: I know what you mean. I guess wheels are naturally going to be the hardest thing to wrap. My main aim was to keep the pattern consistant. I guess if you was wrapping in a single colour, you'd do the spokes, and then do the "inners" separately.

certainly different, would the adhesive on the back of the vinyl not go soft when it gets hot from the brakes?...

Nice little write up Mat, cheers for pointing it out.

I kinda agree with Ian that you should have wrapped inside the wheel or what about if you just did the face of the wheel (and didn't fold it back into the rim??) Its also a cheap solution if you've got scuffed/kerbed/chipped wheels and want to hide them.
