Applying Tar

I would like to put some tar on my rear rim, but I just don't know how to do so...

My brake setup is Trialtech smooth rim, with heatsink yellow pads.

If somebody has a method, please be as precise as possible.

Thanks a lot!

Put about 8 vertical lines down your sidewall.

This should be enough.

OR

Spin your wheel as fast as possible, and put the tar against your rim, and apply a slight bit of pressure, keep doing so, until you have enough.

Obviously repeat for both sides.

Tar doesn't wreck your rim and pads, it is merely a product used to create extra stick, if you don't want it on your rims anymore just remove it with some petrol.

Best way to put it on is to put a series of 5 diagonal lines, spaced evenly around your rim, each one being about 2 inches in length. Naturally as you ride this will spread around the rim. repeat for the other side.

Other method is to spin the back wheel and just briefly touch the block of tar on the rim leaving a thin trail around the rim.

Thanks a lot! I will try the "spin your wheel and apply tar on it" way.

Is the best way although you should be careful applying pressure, just a little bit, if not you'll apply to much tar...
