Default Another mod - Painted brake calipers

Well, I ordered my Ballistic Jester wheels about a month ago. Unfortunately, they are still on backorder. Black wheels with red insert. I think they will look fantastic on my Deep Cherry Red Ram.

So I was thinking of how to make them stand out even more once I get them.

What do you think?







It took a little while and there is snow predicted for tomorrow, so I had to get it done today. Work the next couple of weekends. So it was now or never.

Yeah. What is up with the weather? A couple of days ago, I was wearing shorts and a tshirt all day.
Racerdamon, where in CO are you located? We need to have a CO Ram club. After all, this is RAM country.

I'm in Aurora and agree we need a Co meet but my issue is I had to bring my 2wd in from Seattleand most people here want to go off road.

Makes perfect sence!.. Its the same reason I have not yet purchased them.. I just feel like that would be the best method due to brake dust protection and paint not popping like I would like it to with just paint

Racerdamon - Nothing wrong with a 2wd. There are quite a few of them around here. Any Ram is a great Ram. I wish I had a Sport. The color matched bumpers and grill look amazing. Someday.
And most of the Ram owners around here don't actually go offroad. They just say they do or want to.
We aren't too far apart. I am in Parker, just south of you.

Caliper covers look cool, but I have better ways to spend the money. Other mods. FTW. I paid $20 for my caliper painting kit and did it myself. That makes it even better. Thinking about getting some caliper decals though. Which would look better on the red calipers, white or black lettering?

Very true Niko.. The paint job came out great too.. I would do the black decal lettering.. So its more visable behind the wheel because of the change of color AND I think the white would turn black due to brake dust.. just my opinion though
