i dnt like the look of painted drums personally. if you painted them black it would look good though so its not that crappy stock greyish black that rusts.

red and black...drums shouldn't be painted a color that will contrast...they aren't meant to be shown off. Paint them black and stick with the red calipers. That's what I want to do. Either red/black or black/black for my car.

I think calipers color matched to car looks insane, and i kinda agree with black drums. just IMO, i think thats what'll look best

My 'Balt, Camryn, is my baby. She's a black '09 LT 2.2L with the performance appearance package. I believe that if you take care of your car your car will take care of you.

my drums are painted the same color as my calipers, blue...

no, im not a ricer... far from it...

its all a personal opinion... either way would look fine... ive heard ppl say the calipers & drums should always match whatever you do... to me that doesnt matter... lol...i think what you gotta look at is how much drum is gonna show thru ur rims, if u have hardcore skinny rims, do u want all that red? if u got big thick or multiple spoke rims, do u want something a little extra? that's y i painted my drums... lol, but if they're already red on ur car & ur not feeling them, go black...or dark gunmetal... its your car, lol
