Question Wheel rim coloring - Tape or Paint?

Im considering putting some color on the side of my rims to match the tank, I see they sell tape you can use on Ebay for this. Is this what most people do or are they using paint?

Do this
Rimstripes by Tapeworks

They have a tool that works absolutely amazingly for laying down perfect rim tape.

They also have a color that perfectly matches the green on our bikes. Also have reflective that is pretty close and gives a cool effect at night.

I used 6161 which is a reflective one. The color that nearly exactly matches the tank is 097 I think
