Instructions: When you receive your vinyl decal(s), you will notice it comes with application tape already applied to it. This helps with the transfer of the vinyl lettering or image to the tire cover.
Step 1 Remove tire cover from Tire Shown in Step 1. Take the tire off the spare tire holder for horizontal installation (recommended) or leave on for vertical installation making sure tire cardboard and tire cover are secure during the installation.
Step 2 Find a thick piece of cardboard and use the tire cover as a template to draw a circle on the cardboard. Carefully cut out the circle and place it under the tire cover to provide a flat surface to apply the decal to the tire cover shown in picture below. Clean the vacant area where the vinyl will be applied to make sure that it is free from any wax, oil, dirt, dust, or debris that will prevent the vinyl from sticking. Give the application tape a quick, but firm rub with our no cost squeegee that is included with the car decal. Position decal where you want it and tape it in the center of the decal top and bottom to hold it in position.
Flip over half the decal on one side of the tape that you put on to hold it in its position. Peel off the backing almost to the the folding point and cut off that portion of the backing. Please peel off the backing and make sure the vinyl continues to stick to the application tape, which is the top layer.
Step 3 Hold the end of the application tape a few inches from the tire cover that you removed the backing from and start using the squeegee in an up and down sweeping motion going from the fold line to the end of the decal slowly and firmly making sure that you are not trapping air bubbles under the decal. This allows each part of the vinyl lettering to adhere to the surface of the car window.Once this half of the decal Is applied remove the position tape and follow the same steps for the other half going up to the point where you removed the backing from the first half. Note: If small air bubbles appears after the graphic is applied, you can gently push them out with your fingers or use a small needle to poke the graphic and push the air out.
Step 4 Carefully remove the application tape from the vinyl lettering, pay attention to any part of the letters that may not transfer to the car. If this happens again, simply rub that area a little more firmly and try again. Rub your finger on the vinyl lettering, as if you are tracing the letters, to make sure that the vinyl is securely applied and then peel. Peel off the top application tape layer, which is the top layer.
Removal Process: 1. When the time comes to remove the vinyl lettering, just peel each piece slowly and peel at an angle starting from any one of the corners. 2. If you have pieces that do not peel right away, use our free squeegee for removal. If needed, use a dryer to heat up the vinyl for removal.
