i went with ebay stripes but they come in pieces so you gotta take your time. a one piece with wheel applier would be a perfect fit.

I used pro grip tape on my 07 and it comes with a applicator to help put the tape on. I had a little hard time and messed up a few times. Now one side of my tire doesn't have tape on it since I ran out.

So for a heads up, if you feel like you will do the same, but two.

Go to a paint store and get some pinstripe brushes and a little jar of red pinstripe paint. Throw it on the stands and spin the wheels. Apply as thin or a thick a you want. Have a friend help you keep the wheels spinning.

It can easily be removed later with a solvent il that wouldn't harm your rim paint.
