Duplicolor brush-on caliper paint kit did the job for me. Had it on the car for a few years now. Hasn't faded or chipped.

Those are caliper decals I got from eBay around the same time I did my calipers. I think they we're $8 for a set (2 front, 2 rear).

Now for the color... I would say red but you wouldn't want a Captain America theme going on... Lol what color wheels do you have?

Re: Calipers

what painting calipers?

-pull off wheel
-unbolt caliper
-clean them
-mask off everything around and behind them if using a spray paint
-spray and let dry
-reinstall

super easy...i usually do it when i'm either doing new brake pads or lowering a car. i like killing two birds with one stone

Anybody here ever tried G2 caliper paint? It's about $30-$34 a kit. I know its kinda pricey... But I've actually tried it (painted my friend's calipers) and that stuff is pretty good...has that thick rubber feel after it dries...

A-hole...

You said they come with 245s on them? Hopefully at least 2 of them are good... So you'd only need 2x275s.
