I ordered rim band tape from British Wire Wheel when I did my wires a couple
of years ago. It turned out to be nothing more than thicker than normal
(heavy) vinyl-plastic electrical tape, about 1 1/2" wide. I imagine you
could find something similar at the local Home Depot or any other home
improvement store. It seems to work well, I haven't had any problems so
far. Also, the leftover tape (about 3/4 of the roll) has lots of other uses
around the garage.
Don't use duct tape! The DPO of my wires did, and it deteriorates and
bunches up over time.
I just had my w/w blasted and powder coated. In the process the rim
bands were discarded. What and where do get the best replacements. I
know I will have to run tubes, but have heard of various ways to cover
the spoke ends.
