Unless you ride in nothing but sand or soft goopy mud they are going to look terrible soon.

Seeing as it can be somewhat easily removed, it could be worth a try.

I've seen it done on cars and that can work but even then I'd rather not. Dirt bike rims will have that looking that Swiss vinyl cheese if you actually ride the thing.

For the cost of doing it, I say go for it.  Never hurts to try something new.  I recently saw some rim tape that went up to the spokes, and covered 80% of the rim.  Have to say I liked it.  Probably will do it once I get rid of a couple of bikes and free up some cash for a new one.
