Vinyl stencils ready to be applied
After testing on my spare wheels, the best method is to shave down the sidewall of the tire ( in my case I used a corded drill with an 80 grit sandpaper wheel ) This gives the stencil a fresh and smooth surface to adhere to.
Use a hair dryer or heat gun to heat the tire just before vinyl application
continue use of the heat gun to insure the vinyl is applied smoothly
work out any bubbles or creases

Masking off the edges of the vinyl to keep overspray at a minimum
