  Apply with a generous amount of tension to ensure the tape conforms to the lower rim channel,do not damage the tape.

  End of tape,ensure the tape over valve hole about 5-8cm

  Install the valve stem,use your hand make it tighten as much as you can.

  Mount the tire from the rims valve stem hole opposite,then fill with air until tire bead pops loudly,this conforms the tape to rim bed completely.
