Well there's many different opinions on this, If you are going with the complete Brake redo, for that, I think the Ford Brembo Brake PKGE is a good deal, just my opinion. But if you just want to do Brake covers, there are many, I use the MGP brake covers on mine, but there are more opinions than that. Look around and see what you like.

Thought about, you mentioning that, and desided to make a mental note, to stop the Bold Lettering. May be a little difficult, but will try. I almost did it here again. If you catch me doing it again, just hit me a reply saying "turn off".

It's the company saying 'don't do this' lol looks tacky up close to me, to me. I plan to prep and paint my own. That way you can choose any color you want and even get crafty with script logos etc.. If that doesn't interest you I would suggest an actual upgrade to the brakes which will give you the look you want and way better braking... Don't rip me to hard, just my opinions..

I don't feel they are expensive. You can always just get a whole new Brake setup instead.

Thats your call, and your wallet's call. My Brakes are fine, so for me there ws no need to do a total Brake overhaul, so the covers were just fine. And I'm not doing anything that would cause me to need extra heavy duty Brakes.
