    please recommend a good set of wheel lights

    I've been using a set of wheel lights on my bicycle which has really helped visibility with other motorists at night.

    But the Nite Ize lights keep slipping down by spokes

    And these cheap ones are of low quality and I need to remove them and take them apart each day when I mount my bicycle to my car.

    I'm wondering if there are other types of wheel lights that people could recommend I try

    What is your budget and your list of requirements?

    How could that happen if you mounted them properly?

    Thanks for the responses. I should have mentioned that I'd like to keep my budget below $30 per wheel.
    Vol, you bring up a good point, I will talk with the manufacturer on this issue, they may have some tips.
    I followed the instructions carefully.
