Is it possible to set the u-g-o bits in a Rsync ?

What I want to do is synce files from one machine to another (public web
machine) so that all the files are READ-ONLY and, of course, the sub

Can't find any command line options or rsync.conf settings.

Would be nice to have a --chmod-file=xxxx and a --chmod-folder=xxxx
option, and with the same type of function in the conf file.
