Timestanp question

I've now got scripts that correctly backup all my primary partitions to a
second drive.  The original problem was that I copied them over without
a time stamp, so that the first rsync run found no timestamps and wanted
to copy them all over again.  So I used:

	 'rsync -r -t -v --size-only $SOURCE $TARGET'

My question is this:  do I need to continue to use --size-only, or has
the first rsync backup run put time stamps on all files?
