if you keep them, consider changing to red (there is a member on here custom making decals). It will pick up the red in the pedals and on the frame...just a thought

or go nothing...less busy the better too.

Do whatever you like. Both will look nice. But please keep the red tire for the trainer.

That's all I could think. Decals look good on there, picks up the red in the frame, but please ditch the red tire.

Remove the decals.
Make both tyres the same colour.

You should do what you like, but personally I feel that keeping the wheel decals matches the big number of labels on the frame. It kinda makes a unified look to me.

Ya, that's what I was wondering about. The wheels are a matte finish and have a unidirectional carbon grain. I wonder if they would look better in a dark grey or black decals?

I'd leave them on. There are a lot of ugly decals out there but these look great. And I like the white "flashing" while riding.

Keep them. I have. I would normally remove wheel decals but there is something about these ones I like.

Clarification
I have two sets of C35's. One clincher set and a tub set. The set in question is the tub set...so no red tire. Red tire was mounted for the trainer through the winter.
