I am not what you would call a steady handed person. Installing these was easy, but took awhile. Lemire109 obviously had issues, but this product has improved. I used glass wipes from Walmart to wipe off my dirty rims. Then I immediately applied the decals. The decals were plenty long. I recommend a slight overlap when matching up each section. You will have enough room at the end. You can tell a little bit that they are stickers if you don't overlap. They are so sticky that I was stretching the decals a bit while applying...then I ran my finger across the strip twice to make sure it stuck well. After riding an entire day in 96 degree weather these stickers didn't melt off and didn't get damaged at all. Amazing and everyone thought they looked great. Oh yeah...don't heat...I got lazy and didn't heat and mine turned out perfect...so don't heat.
