Black 18" Ford Racing Wheels

I'm planning on repairing my 18" wheels on my Focus Titanium, which may involve sanding part of the stock paint job off. So I figure if I'm going to have to paint the wheels why not do them black. I was wondering if anyone has these wheels on their car and would post pics so I can get a good idea of whether black's a good idea.

My car's Tuxedo black, so I'm hoping for a blackout effect with red-painted calipers.

Thanks

From the tirerack configurator:



I did have to save the picture as a screen shot, but that's a tux black mk3 with the black painted ti wheels.

Wow. Now, seeing that pic you just linked, I'm thinking of painting mine black, since my Ti came with Black headlights and the black foglight bezels, I think the Black on White Platinum Tri-coat would be good.

I really like those but I'm considering the Axis Xcite with red accent. Choices...
