It's been discussed before on here. I'm sure a search can find the previous threads. But the overall summary, NO..!

If your calipers are rusting just paint them black, can be done with any kit from your local auto parts store.

They are awesome!!! Make sure your rims can clear the upgraded caliper first! Your stopping power will be awesome.

pretty easy to install. take them out of the box.. put them behind your rear tires.. get in your car and put your car in reverse, back up until the crunching noises stop. enjoy

There jus covers which are stuck on your calipers, front ones would most likley pop off though, rear shoud be ok. Most likley would need to be cut and sanded to fit flush

This, but if you're not satisfied with you calipers, paint them. I'm not a fan of them and think you shouldn't do this, but that's just my opinion. If you do go through it, post pictures.

Best part is that the list wasnt done. Notice the etc. at the end.

So it wont fit Cruze, Fawkes , REIZ, Roewe 550, new REGAL, Mazda 3, Mazda 2, excelle GT, Ferrari Cayenne,sportage, 07 Odyssey, Lexus ES, Subaru Legacy. etc

and many more...
