What Color Should I Paint My Calipers?

I need to get my calipers painted. Can't decide what color to go with so I'll put it up to a vote here. Right now, they are silver (oxidized aluminum) but my options for paint are silver, black or red. Let me know what you think...

Here is a current photo (pay no attention to the mud on the wheels and large wheel gap...it was sitting on uneven ground!)



Yea, tho I cruise through the valley of the shadow of rice, I will fear no Turbo,
for Torque art with me. Thy rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

if you dont have any accent colors (doesnt look like you do) then i would go red if you want them to stand out. black would just hide them and silvers ok but looks stock. so i would go red

I'm leaning towards red also. I might tint the windows in the future, but I probably won't black out my lights. I like chrome wheels and the headlights seem to accent them nicely. Red calipers would be a nice subtle accent.

I'd love to get a set of these, but they run around $200 for a set of 4

MGP Caliper Covers

You can get them wit custom engraving (SS or Bowtie)

agree it looks cool but if you can just paint them do that
or if you have the money take them to get powdercoated
