to your wheels which occur in low speed maneuvering condition such as parking and

Make sure your rims are at least 60 degrees warm.(Cold rims condense warm air upon contact and your rims will have moisture on them – doubled sided tape will not stick to wet rims)
If your rims have been repaired or freshly painted, let them off-gas for at least 72 hours before installing Wheel Bands™.
Once warmed up and dry, wipe your rims clean with alcohol wipes until brake dust or silicone residue has been completely removed from your rim.
Remove the backing from the double-sided tape and push the Mounting Track onto the flat surfaced edge of your rim.
Once you install it all around the rim, cut the mounting track about 1/16th of an inch longer and push it tightly against the beginning of where you started.(The goal is to minimize the gap between where the track ends meet)
Now push the round insert into the mounting track and go all the way around. Again cut it about 1/16th of 1” longer and force the insert end into the mounting track.(Using the tool, push it in towards the rim and slide it around the rim to ensure contact is solid)
Repeat on the 3 other wheels and you’re done.
Your 4 rims can be equipped in about 20 minutes without deflating or removing your tires.
Pro Tip: For when your insert gets scratched as you scrape up against the curb; if it really bothers you, you can always find the intersection where the two insert ends meet and with the tip of a small knife lift the insert out of the mounting track.
The re-install it with the damaged side facing in (hidden from sight) as you re-install the insert back into the track with the new side facing out.
Note: With the new tire changing machines (with paddles), you can even change your tire without damaging your Wheel Bands™.
