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

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.
