I've thought about it doing that too (my truck is also white), but my concern was if brake dust accumulation would make it look bad. Let us know how it works out the first week after you get it done.

If you are super anal about cleaning them it will be ok. They will still turn darker over time though. Don't let the brake dust sit on them for too long.

Ahh, forgot about the cap.

Another quick question, did you tape it all off to spray or did you uninstall and etc... to paint?
i did get some paint on there but oh well im not too concerned about that. and i didnt take it off not enough time for that today or really the complete know how. i just taped, masked and put newspaper where ever i could. i wadded up a little and put it in the hole thats in the middle and where ever paint could get to the pads/rotor. i should state i used duplicolor high heat clear/base. its good up to 500 degress and seeing that most caliper kits have this rating it should work.

Changes have been noticed. Any plans to paint the rims black?

well i have been looking at getting a set of 20" boss 330s. they come in black, grey silver and chrome. ive thought about going black but im not sold on it. seeing as though ive named my truck the stormtrooper it certainly wouldnt be a bad idea for black and possibly grey.
