If you lightly heat the stickers with a blowdryer for a minute or so it will make the stickers much easier to remove

Guys,

You saved me a day!

First decal took me 15 mins.... rest of the wheel (5 more) took me 10 mins!

P.S. I kinda like the non decal look as well.... saves me also a couple of gramm hahaha
