Using rSync, is it possible to have all copied files and directories assume the owner, group, and permissions of the destination directory, whatever they might be?

I've played with the following options in various combinations to no avail. Copied files continue to take their properties with them.

--no owner
--no group
--no perms

Clearly I just don't get it.
