Paint is the best way to go.
FWIW : Yellow is usually denotes carbon fiber brakes. White is usually used for ceramic. Red is generally used to mean performance.

I think yellow is super cool and unique. I like that idea A Lot! I painted mine and then I used a decal, over the years has helped up perfect.

If you dont mine can you share a pic of the wheel and calipers, just wanted to see how it looks. Did you paint it all by yourself? Thank you for sharing your views

Hey,
Here's a few pics with some different rims I've had.
Yes I paint them. It's very easy. Make sure you use a caliper cleaner of paint thinner etc. -Then scuff them with sand paper (180- 220) or a scuffing pad.
-Paint them the colour you like.
-Apply decal that you bought
-Apply a few coats of clear coat. This isn't totally necessary usually. But if you're applying decals than it is. This will also help keep the calipers clean and make it easy to clean off any brake dust etc.
Hope that helps.

Be careful when ordering caliper decals. Make sure they are the correct size. I ordered some from Amazon and they were too large.
