Hey MrMike, I really like the modified look with the tape. Gr8 idea. It looks like a totally different wheel with cuts there. I have the same wheels.I have a '14 Sunset Titanium with the 18" wheels. I bought chrome mag wheels for my factory tires for summer use. I modified my stock wheels to use in the winter with my snow tires. Rather than paint, I applied pieces of black reflective tape to get a different look. You can cut it in any shape or pattern you want. You also have the plus of added nighttime visibility when light hits the tape. Enclosed is a picture. The stock wheel is on the left and the modified one is on the right.
Where did you buy the black reflective tape?
