Default rim strips

Anyone ever see a review of rim strips? I can't find any.

I'm happy if I can even find one in the right size. I had to make my last one.

I've used his stuff on my bike and am happy. I went with reflective stuff. You dont have to.

If those are reflective, they may assist in "conspicuity" at night.

Anything that will catch the eye of another driver and make my (your) ride safer is a good thing.
