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!)

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

200 for covers to put over your calipers? if youre loaded and have money like that to spend, what the hell.

otherwise, i think its stupid.
Agreed. Not worth the money.

Haha, looks cool, but I am in Steeler country...black and gold may be a little over the top. (I'm a fan, but not that big of a fan...LOL)

G2 does seem to have lots of color options!
honestly would go for the red ones but everybody mentioned gold honestly not a big fan either of that contrast I'm painting mines blue and have a ultra silver cobalt

Man! This is a close vote! Black and red are almost tied! I do like the red, but I'm afraid of them standing out tooo much. Any pics of black SS with red calipers?
