Default pvc question

i bought some hot works rims and today i got some PVC and it was just a little to big so i was trying to figure out what you guys use.

my dad suggested using cauk to fill in the seems so im trying that out its still drying

so just let me know what you use to attach the PVC onto the rims

wrap some electrical tape (the black tape) around the rims, so when you put the pvc on its nice and snug

Also, if the PVC was unevenly balanced or placed crookedly on the rim with the caulk, the car would shake itself to pieces. I might be wrong, but that is what I think.
