There cant be a way to paint your rotors. He must mean calipers. I say Yellow.

Sorry, got a case of the dumb ass. Yep, I meant calipers. I was thinking yellow, but maybe I'll try black. ;)

You can paint your rotors.... everything but the rotor surface itself.
It wouldnt be worth it. Try and get some pics to show me. Cause I think it would be pointless. I beleave you that u can but I just dont think you could see them that well. IMO:smokin:

On an a-mold wheel, you definitely see the hub. On non-GS rotors, the hub will rust and look nasty. Some high-temp paint and you are in good shape.

:agree:

when i had 18 Y2ks all around you could see everything inside the wheel. I had the hubs of the rotors and all but where the pads rub painted gloss black, to match the Black GS calipers and the gloss black caliper bracket. i went with eradispeed 2 piece rotors now so i dont need to paint them anymore. The hub is anodized black , and the surface of the rotor is cadmium plated so where the pad doesnt rub it will stay nice and clean.

:cheers:
