Rim sticker/decals

This sort of a silly question but do you guys take the stickers/decals off your Velocity rims? They are huge and wasn't sure if they are made to stay on or not :-)

Thanks
Paul,

Absolutely....

A few minutes with the heat gun and either adhesive remover or WD40 for adhesive clean-up.

I have several sets of wheels with Velocity rims and the decals never bothered me or fell off.

I take them off. Not sure how durable they are. The wheels are lighter without them.

My Deep V's look way better without the labels.
