The wheels for my new Parlee Chebacco are amazing- Enve M50's laced to dt240 hubs. Light, wide and understated. The only problem is that they have bright red decals all over the hubs!

Has anyone removed these before, and do you see any issues in trying to do so through/between the spokes? The only thing worse than the decals would be little bits of torn decals!

Any experience or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Heat, like hair dryer.
If glue remains, rub your figer untill it drops off or use glue remover and a cloth rag.

Mine peeled straight off by hand, just look for the overlap and stat peeling. Used some lighter fluid on a rag to clear off the last of the glue residue.

What about removing just the red parts on RR440 rims?

The same: use hand and/or hair dryer to peel off?

I really wish these rims had the all-white graphics, like the R460s.
