Yeah I fitted these ones last year and I'm still not too sure about them...
... some days they look cool and other days it looks tacky.

Its all up to you though.

I need to return some videotapes.

Yep I have these ones like most XRs I see now, used the bigger stickers for the panniers! I think it brings out the colour on the wheels, we are all tarts at heart

I’ve got the same ones as posted by American Psycho above, but in white/grey to match my bike. Have never thought they look tacky. Bike looks like it’s moving even when stationary.
