Try your local automotive paint store. They usually have roll stock.

Look for "1/4.

I've probably done almost 10 rims with automotive pinstriping and it works beautifully and its cheap.

Make sure you clean the wheel with either alcohol or contact cleaner, and stretch the tape slightly (maybe even use a hairdryer to warm it up a bit) when applying it.

Does it hold up well to cleanings and such?

yup... no problem for cleanings. The only time I ever had problems was with my first attempt and I just didn't clean the wheel enough. Any dirt, oil, grime will prevent good adhesion.

What about nail polish? a million colors to choose from and that would seem pretty durable, but could easily be removed with some nail polish remover. You could also choose where and how think you wanted it and easily touch it up if needed yourself? I was thinking of doing the little lip between the the rest of the rim and the tire itself. The rimstripes looks good and I like the reflective option (do they have reflective nail polish?), but the stripe seems a little thicker than I would prefer and the rim lip would always keep a perfect circle shape. Anyone tried this?

Though it might seem odd having a bottle of nail polish in your tool kit.
