Why do you want to paint them?

If it's for function, black's the color, preferably flat. Dissipates heat better, dust doesn't show. And on dark wheels like yours, calipers will be practically invisible, unless you opt for ultragloss.

If it's for looks, you'd have to go silver to avoid the rice look, but still make the calipers evident on your dark wheels.

P.S. Come to think of it, white might even work, given the body color. But then you'd have to clean the wheels AND the calipers every weekend...

P.P.S. White with a black stripe across?
