I would not recommend doing that if you are referring to your rotors.

If you mean the rotors....don't paint them.

If you mean the calipers.... it's an easy diy weekend job...

Good luck.

And if he means hubs - then yes they can be painted - just be sure to mask the rotor surfaces.

Hi. As you have read on the other posts don't paint the actual disc surfaces, just paint the hubs or "hats". For my discs I degreased the hubs and sanded them lightly. I sprayed them with Rustoleum Cold Galvanizing. This is a high zinc content grey primer. I have not had any rust in 3 years. I hope this helps.
