Default Should i tape CFs?

Hey guys, my shipment for MTR Crime fighter tires just arrived. I was wondering, if i should tape these tires to reduce balloning and wear. But, i also heard that if my tape becomes loose, my tire just turns into trash. I don't want that So, what should i do tape it or don't tape it? I'll also be using Gorilla Duct Tape if that helps. Thanks!

Personally, I wouldn't strap. Although most use duct tape, fiberglass strapping tape is much better.

Thanks for your reply, do you happen to know what the pros and cons are of strapping your tires?

Negatives are added weight and many times will cause excessive out of balance.
