The only consolation to me is that because the wrap is so "busy", it hides the problem well. I did try to flatten down the bunches at the lugs by removing them and with simply pulling on the wrap with one hand and putting the lug on with the other after heating the area with a hair dryer, I got only so-so results. Not sure if time and age will continue the bunching on yours, but I can guess keeping them out of the sun and extremely dry air might help the cause. d.
