    That's almost inevitable. I had aftermarket rotors, and they get a bit of rust on them too. Not as much as the stockers though.

    You could, if you're extremely patient and very careful, Buy some high temp rustoleum in the color of your choosing.

    However, you must first remove all of the rust and tape off the area where your pads rub. Make sure your tape is precise. Use a painters tape as to not leave any sticky residue. You don't want to gum up your pads.

    When painting do very light coats. Give about half an hour between coats, depending on how hot or cool it is where you paint. Make sure they are dry before putting back on car.

    I did this on my stock explorer rotors and the 1.25 spacers I had to use. They looked horrible after I put 18's on there. Looked real sweet when finished. I used a grey mettalic flake to match the rims.
