ProsGood choice of widths
Used on the new wheels on my fixi project, good range of widths so I had a choice to get the correct one for the wheels. It went on easily, had to trim the hole slightly with some scissors to accommodate a Schroeder valve.

ProsAhesive not overly sticky, stronger than tubeless tape, cheap, longevity, array of widths
I use 10mm tape to cover the majority of the spoke holes and then some quality tubeless tape to make it airtight. The cotton tape stops less good rimtape from breaking on the lips of the spoke holes and bulging inwards over time due to pressure. The 10mm covers the perfect amount of the rim whilst leaving sufficient amount of surface area for the tubeless tape to seal on either side. Overkill? Probably but I have had no issues with it and zero punctures and it's better than doing two layers of lesser good tubeless tape :)

This setup also works well for non-tubeless set up at the tubeless tape provides low friction when seating tyres, avoiding catching or lifting up the edges of the cotton tape

ConsOnly presta valve hole
ProsJust simply the best
Much prefer this to the hard plastic stuff as it does not slip out of position. Would like a wider selection of widths to be available. The valve hole is for presta so I usually end up with some nail scissors trying to open it up. Would also like to be able to buy it as a bulk roll and cut to length to save cost.

ProsGreat value, easy to fit and apply and enough tape on the roll for 27” wheels
Quality tape that is easy to apply. Valve hole already pre-punched and being self adhesive the tape rolls on into position very easily. I have applied this to over 8 wheel sets and all have been a dream to finish the wheel off before tube and tyre are fitted.

My "Go-To" rim tape

ConsAdhesive can dry out whereupon tape moves
ProsAvailable in 10mm
Velox was the only tape I could find in 10mm size. I have found in the past if you use tape that is too wide for the rim this can have two disadvantages as the tape encroaches on the area of the rim occupied by the tyre bead. The first is that it can become more difficult to fit the tyre and secondly the tyre may "wobble" as it is unable to sit uniformly on the bead seat. On the downside, as these are self adhesive you need to check after a ride that the tape hasn't moved, as with one tape there were a couple of sections where the adhesive had dried out. This can be easily fixed by re-aligning the tape and securing with electrical tape.
Very good product

ProsDoes a better job than other products on the market
Offers much more protection than some of the thin plastic tape types, it helps particularly against spoke nuts damaging the inner tube. I have had flats before due to this - this tape stops this from happening, as it offers much more protection. This should be the default choice on all wheel rims. The very slight weight gain is nothing to the miles of trouble free cycling these help to provide.

ProsEasy to fit, rugged
Used 16mm for 1970’s rusty Dunlop steel rim. Fitted perfectly and thick fabric made a much better seat for the tube than the rather worse for wear old plastic tape.
Just have to be careful when fitting really tight 26 x 1 3/8 tyres that they didn’t lift the tape off the rim
You Probably Don'T Want The 10Mm
By Ben

Cons10mm probably too narrow
ProsGreat tape
I got the 10mm thinking it was a road bike rim (DT Swiss RR585) so should be the narrowest size. But it barely covered the holes in the outer skin and I was a bit worried about punctures so got some 16mm instead which went in nicely. Not sure what rim you would use 10mm on.

I have used this tape for 20 years, amongst others, and find it's the most suitable for most applications. Not the very lightest but probably the most versatile. It does NOT SPLIT. Put 1 layer of electrical insulation tape below and this stops the adhesive becoming gummy and don't overlap the ends as it can sometimes make the tyre a bit harder to seat and off you go for years of 'Fit and forget' performance.

This tape oozes confidence. Because it's cloth and woven to the width there are no sharp edges to cause punctures. The adhesive feels secure without being too gooey or too strong. I'll only buy this kind of rim tape from now on.

Questions & Answers (11)
Rim tape width for Hope Twenty 5 Rim
14 Sep 2023
Info I can find indicates Hope Twenty5 has an internal width of 20mm, should I use 22mm wide or 16mm wide tape?
We recommend using 22 min rim tape as that allow the tape space to stretch into the centre channel. SK 18/09/23
what rim tape is suitable on Mavic x221 rims ?
11 May 2023
The rim has an internal width of 17mm, I would use the medium (16mm) for the X221, this should provide suitable coverage for the eyelets. SK 11/05/23
Is this suitable for single wall road rims?

Old 27” wheels for steel vintage bike, with round spoke nipple ends.
Yes, just make sure you select the correct width tape!

Hi I have dt swiss rr511 wheels and having a nightmare with rim tape puncturing my tubes , can u suggest which size I need
Hi, looking at DT Swiss rim spec for the RR511 you need 700 x 18 mm like the Schwalbe 700c / 622 x 18 mm High Pressure PU Rim Tape our part 35235. If you find the spoke holes are to close to the edge of the tape causing punctures you might try 700 x 20 in the same tape. Thanks

Brompton Wheel Use
22 Jul 2015
Can you advise the width of tape that is required for the latest (2015) Brompton double walled wheels? Will one roll be enough for both wheels?

Bromptons own rim tape for their double wall rims are 18mm wide, so none of the sizes in this tape match up exactly, but the 16mm would be the closest. One roll would not be enough to do both wheels I'm afraid, you would need to buy two rolls.
