Ideas for color to paint calipers?

10048 Views 27 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  GOOFY
I have a Rotor Glow ralliart, so choosing a color to paint the calipers is tough. They are kind of rusty and just look bad, so I'd like to paint them but am having trouble deciding on what color. I have matte black rims, so I'm not sure how they would look if I painted the calipers black. I have a pic in my photo album if you care to take a look. Any ideas or opinions are welcome!

On my WW i would like to go red or bright blue
It will depend on the accesories colors under the hood
If you have black wheels on your WW, I decided to go yellow with the Brembo BBK I made, and LOVE it. Don't discount yellow as a little pop, even with stockers. But I'm not sure I would want to draw that much attention to the stock brakes. Almost everyone stares at my BBK up front. I don't know if it is because it is yellow, or big, but it is the one thing I catch people drooling over more than anything else on my car.

Why the 2 yr old bump? I doubt the OP is still trying to decide.
Maybe whomever bumped it wanted.......
"Ideas for color to paint calipers?"
and decided to bump this one, instead of cluttering things up with a new one. Just one possibility.
in my case i would like to put some white grids, so with with wheels on white car i should use another color on the calipers to make some contrast,

post some pictures from your WW RA so i can get an idea of how it looks!


The only thing I think you should take in to consideration is the fact that our cars really aren't "white". I have seen WW with white rims, and I'm not fond of it because of the color difference. We also have a white smart car, and it is as white as white gets. My car looks white until you pull the Smart next to it. At that point, it looks very "off white", if that makes sense.

Edit: Just realized you can see my Smart through the windows on the pic I posted on the last page, but you can't fully see how white the Smart is, and how "off white" it makes WW look.
