Looks good on a black car with black rims if you get the right color. I have to be resistent to a lot of things. Heat, oil, acid and so on. Best thing is to buy a box with all you need in it from a known company. This way you will get nice shiney calibers that will last for years.

Taste is a strange thing. You could say that every time you mod your car - its cheap looking.

I just got me a set of caliber paint course i am tired of the black rims and need some color in that area. Its kind of expensive and takes lots of work and time (a couple of days). But do it if you like. All cars dont have to look the same.
When i get the time and get it done i will post pictures. I use pro race rims and they are very open and simple but strong and light.

if you dont have BBK, paint the stock caliper black for a cleaner look.

either black or silver... not red, or any color that draws attention to your tiny ugly stock calipers.
