Default Yellow or Red calipers

I know it's pretty trendy to paint your calipers now but I said I'm gonna do it anyway. Now the wheels get painted black when I get home. So while the wheels are off I'm gonna paint the calipers. Everyone does Red but I'm thinking yellow but I don't wanna make it look like an import ricer POS. What do y'all think?

I would just leave them as is or paint them black. Almost any paint you put on them will flake off with time. I'm not saying do not paint them, as that is your ride and choice.

If I was to paint them though, probably would do red. Yellow is too flashy and you have to make sure that the colour goes with the colour of the vehicle.

I don't think yellow would look bad with your blue truck. Then again, I'm a Michigan fan!

Yellow is cool- red is done to death in my part of town but they do look good- mine are black and I think the only people who would even notice em are car guys...
I saw a black corvette yesterday and the calipers were copper- my jaw dropped it was so freakin cool
Maybe I'd just never seen it before but it looked so nice- bright and stand out- but metallic
Just a thought.

I choose Red and do like the look. It is a fall and spring ritual to touch them up due to all the chipping. This spring whenever it warms up I'm stripping them down and redoing them.

Neither, Hemi Orange. Trust me. Good caliper paint won't flake off or VHT exhaust paint. But engine paint has held up well for me.

I have always had good success with Dupli-Color Caliper Paint. If prep'ed properly, the paint will hold up and not flake...

Default Yellow or Red calipers

I have been looking at pics of yellow calipers with black wheels. I am probably gonna go with that. They look pretty cool. Who knows I might say red on one side and yellow on the other. Lol.
