Hi, I would like to ask you gals and guys, as to what is the best color to paint the calipers. I just put new chrome rims and my 325 exterior color is Titanium Silver.

I have seen calipers painting kits in yelow and red and no other colors. If you have painted the calipers on your car please post a picture.

All opinions will be greatly appreciated..

Thanks
Tom

I have red brake calipers on my other black car (mustang) and they look great. I think red will look great on silver as well
