Do you like the looks of rim tape?

I have rim tape, but it's so subtle you don't notice it at all unless it reflects (which is why it's there).

Whatever floats your boat, though. I think it'd be better to get reflective than not.

It all in personal preference as stated before.. IMO subtle = good. I have a friend with a black bike/black wheels with white rim tape, doesn't look good since nothing else on the bike is white.

I was able to sneak out for a moment during lunch. Phone camera pic, so not very good but hey.

I picked the black because the silver wouldn't match. Because it's reflective, it is extremely subtle and the eyes pass over it even during the daytime.

(And yes, I know I'm missing my valve stem cap.)

FYI, I got them from tapeworks.com. Easy install, just take your time and follow the instructions. They've been on for over a year now and no problems whatsoever in the heat/cold (heh 120F-28F) and rain.

Does the tape survive a commercial tire change? I have not had to replace tires, but I have heard of rims getting scratched, so I thought the tape too.
