General Tech Wire wheel sealing bands?

Bob Branson

It's a bit difficult to locate the original rubber sealing bands that went around the rims under the inner tubes to protect them from damage. I seem to remember seeing some other solutions to this. What did you use?

I believe Hendrix Wire Wheel will also sell you rim/band tape.

When Hendrix put new tires and tubes on the 72 B they put a tape type material on the center covering the spoke ends, never had a problem. PJ

I used the PVC pipe wrap tape a little over two years ago and everything is hunky dory.
