I followed Leeders idea to mask off the emblem of the OEM center caps then painted with Black Fusion paint. 3mm red stripes from ebay finish up the outline. Its unlikely that the stripes will survive a tire dismount but I hope they stay this way thru Nats.

The Motegi's came painted satin black. The CTR center caps fit perfectly and have the nice red Honda logo. The problem is that they come with gloss black on the rest of the cap to match the stock wheel. I was able to sand and paint the black area of the center cap to better match the satin black of the Motegi's and still give the hub some red for a more OEM look. The red stripe made the biggest impact when added.
