Well, my rear tyres are different brand to my front tyres, and the maskig method Daz has used here worked on the rears.
But the fronts seems to have a treaded pattern on the inside edge, not allowing enough surface area for the tape to stick.
So it might have to be a deck of cards for the fronts.. That, or I'll just get the tyres taken off.

I am only painting the outside face, because I'm going Metallic Charcoal, the inside of the rim isnt noticeable anyway and a waste of paint.

Photo's to come..

The tape sticks to the lip of the rim (sticky side facing inwards) - not on the tyre.
