    Default Best colour to paint calipers

    Hi I am thinking of painting my brake calipers but don't know what colour would be best. The car is an 07 sri in red, so don't think red is really a suitable colour for them.

    The best colour is what ever you like the most. I think yellow would look good on a red car.

    going from one extreme to the other Gloss black for a toned down look or allternativelly Yellow or white for a high vise look if you can not make your mind up have a look at some of the threads running on this subject you should be able to find plenty of inspiration
    And use Hammerite smooth paint as your paint of choice

    Yep, i say gold for a red car! White would be interesting with some red decals on them but might be tricky to keep clean?

    I think red would work with a red car. Maybe I'm just imagining it better than everyone else... you don't have black wheels by any chance do you? I think it would look cracking.
