Default Painting Calipers (Opinions Needed)

Hey guys, hope everyone is having a good day today. I have been itching to put some color on my calipers and I really can't come to a decision. I have two colors in mind, red or blue. Here is a pic of my truck.





So tell me what you think..... Red or Blue?

Well I would not go with blue as there would be no contrast. I would say red or even black would look sick.

Gold or Bronze would look good. Blue would be too much.

This of course is my opinion, but i would look at caliper covers rather than painting them. Caliper covers give you more of an aftermarket brake look. I plan on getting some in the near future. The brand I have been seriously eyeing is MGP.

Have seen caliper covers in person and they dont cover the whole caliper and they do get dirty. i would paint them black and you would be good to go. those covers are wayyy to much money if you have seen the price ? Good luck with your choice.

alright sounds like blue is out of the picture lol, I have considered the caliper covers and I looked at the price and im like mehh lol. If I was rich I would lol. Im leaning more towards the red, but come on and give me more opinions.
