Caliper covers any cheap ones? Lol

I'm looking to get either blue or black caliper covers for my 2013 gt but I don't want to spend too much on them... Any out there at a good price??

Have you considered painting them instead? Cheap and easy.

Do you think they will look good just painted...? I think the covers would look a little better but I may just go with the paint now that I know I can get it.

I'm not a fan of the MGP (I think that is the brand) covers. And I don't know if heat is properly dissipated with them. I painted my rears...

Either way, I'd paint them, the if you decide to cover them, at least it looks consistent if any part of the caliper shows from behind the cover.

Yeah that is true... Did you use a brush or spray?
