Wheel Flap Material

Recommended Posts

I have 20" spoke wheels on my 1921 Peugeot, and wish to protect the new tubes from contact with the spoke ends. I ordered flaps for this from Coker, but all they had were flaps over twice my wheel's width. Could I use duct tape or some other material for this?

I'm assuming you have steel spoke wheels? If so, then you ordered the wrong item. Rimstrips fit on the wheel rim covering only the spoke tips. The same strip fits a 17" to 21" wheel. Full flaps are used for split rims and clincher wheels and are tucked in over the tube, but inside the tire when mounting. If this is the case, just call Coker and exchange the flaps for rimstrips. This is a fairly common mistake.
