T-Bar painting a drop in tile ceiling.

I am looking at painting the t-bar in my office and want to know what type of paint I should use. It is currently black and want to change it to white. I am doing the t-bar only as the tiles are in pretty good shape, and I will be rolling it. Is latex primer with a latex top coat going to be fine or do I need to use oil.

It might be ok. I've sprayed several of those type ceilings but always used a solvent based primer top coated with latex. Is the black grid glossy? Are you sure the tiles will still look good when next to the new white?
