Be careful with 20s can look great, but look terrible if the wrong choice of rim. My dad had sport tuning 20s on his 06

I say 19s because they are a muscle car rim and those need more tire sidewall to look the best.

Duplicolor caliber paint just got it at advanced took mea hour or so. Just masked it off and sprayed my calipers were real clean but if they are dirty I recommend cleaning them off

Looks great one of my first tasks is to inspect my breaks and replace if needed this might be a decent add on project

I used rust oleum high temp paint and carefully brushed on. Saved time masking and avoided any overspray. I also painted the parts of the disc that develop rust. Very happy until I can afford big brakes.

I have an all black 06 GT. my calipers are black as of right now, but people have been telling me to paint them a different color just to offset everything else being black. Any opinions
