Your car has Brake calipers. Are you talking about painting them, replacing with a big brake kit and having better looking ones? Your OP basically tells us you want to put tires on your car because its missing them.

What are you asking in your OP?

Haha yeah relatively new. I'm just getting into the forums. It's been on and off over a year now Thanks for the advice. BTW how would I go about painting them myself? Hows the process? Or should I have a bodyshop do it?

If you don't use it you look like you are having a conversation with yourself (well that or like you need to be wearing a helmet)

you have brake calipers already, they are what clamp down on the brake rotors (the shiny round part) painting them is something you can do yourself
