Best color for brake caliper?

I just wanted to know what color you all think would look best...and on what color...thinking about changing color and putting decals on my black car. Red might be a little too flashy for me. What do yall think?

i agree i like red, and mine are red now but i didn't do a good job and was gonna redo it. But I wanted to try something different. I have the stock sport rims and a black car. i was thinking black with the white decal?

If BBK, I prefer red. If stock, just leave them alone. Unless they are rusting in which case paint them silver.

But on BBK, not our puny stock calipers. Silver or black.

stock, paint black.

BBK totally depends on the rest of the car/theme (if any)... also, is very much a personal thing... show your personality and individuality and find something you like.

Silver or black are the only way to go with stock brakes in my opinion. Here's my black on silver setup:

Do you have BBK? If yes, then I would make them flashy. Paint them red or gold. If they are stock brakes then I would paint them black or silver depending on the color of your rims to help them blend in. IMO, kinda rice to show off puny stock brakes (know what I mean?).

Exactly! So much so that silver isn't even a good idea (imo)...
