well to go with the color combonation with ur car, i would personally pick something else that doesn't go with ur car at all, like a metalic blue, or zebra striped calipers, to match the red roundels that dont go with anything.

or you could just paint them brown, i bet that would look good too

stock calipers painted red (or any loud color) looks silly imho. why would you want to bring attention to stock calipers?

Gloss black...nothing too special about stock. May give a cleaner dust free look to the wheel.
