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.

Black's always a good idea

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...
