    It's all about what YOU like. Personally I like them both, but if I had to pick, I would probably go with painting them black.

    Black wheels are for trucks,,,but that's just me.

    Frankly, the only wheels that should be painted on a car are wheels made of steel.

    But hey,,,,it's your car,,,personalize it the way you like and enjoy it.

    this are my calipers and rotors now... i want to pain the calipers again but i been thinking on painting the rotors black,,, the center of course and the edge on the out side of the rotor.. and the lines on the inside of the rotors (slotted?) paint them red or black since they have some rust already.. what you guys think?? thanks

    looks good imo. You just spray them with black spray paint and if so does it let the light through it so you can see it?

    Thanks bro.
    I used paint for the lights.
    It's special paint for that. I did, the tail lights, headlights and blinkers on my friends truck. It looks good.
    The light still visible. At nights u can't notice the paint is there
    On mine the light still goes thru the paint.
