Rim stripes on my bike....yes or no (part two)

So....as I said I was going to do, peeled the stripes off one side of the bike. Got more tape, so it will be quick to put them back on. They peeled off NICELY. No residue or anything.

What do you guys think?

Black wheels looks pretty trick, I gotta say, but it takes a little flair away from the look of the bike. Looks more business.

Thanks for the input guys....

Decided to go without 'em for a little while...it kinda grew on me. Got plenty of striping material, so I'll put them back on later. :
