Remove wheel Decals

I am looking for some advise on how i can remove the decals from my Dura Ace 50mm carbon rims. The decals don`t feel like stickers , the decals are really hard almost like they have been baked on or something.

Thanks in advance for any advise.

There's a good chance the decals are under the final clear coat, so using aggressive solvents to remove them could be harmful to the rims.

Unless they really bother you, I suggest leaving them alone.
