Need suggestions on Brembo color

Looking to paint my brembos on my 13' to make them stand out more with my new charcoal amr wheels. My car is deep impact blue, I feel like the typical red wouldn't work but am looking for suggestions.

This color wheel suggests something between yellow and orange.

But I'd say since your blue is darker than the blue on the wheel that I'd lean towards yellow

Yea I was thinking yellow but wasn't sure if that would be too much. I'll have to try and find some pictures online perhaps.

haha here are your options according to color science.. or whatever it's called

On this one it appears you would do like a blue-green. Not that it would look good, but you'd have "maximum contrast and stability" haha

haha guess i'll have to photoshop that sometime. I just can't see how that wouldn't be gross.

Now the OP with the dark blue, then doing yellow would look cool. I give you that. I just think my car would forever be known as the christmas tree car from hell haha.

Maybe you need analogous colors, orange or purple haha... I agree with you green wouldn't look good. Maybe orange or purple would work, or maybe color wheels aren't as cool as I thought.

I could see a shade of orange looking really good. A darker shade maybe. I don't know about purple. It might look good once I see it on the car, but I am not the biggest fan of purple.

Maybe I'll do hot pink calipers.

that would shock everybody wouldn't it haha

http://http://www.graphic-express.com/zzzz-kevin_burton.asp Obviously its not the brakes that are painted....And the blue is slightly different... So I don't know if this post makes any sense at all but it shows the blue orange contrast.

DAAAA Bears.

I personally like the red and the Kona (DIB on 13'). The 11'-12' GT500 had a Kona/Red theme that looked pretty sweet IMO. I was considering red calipers with red hash marks on the fenders...hmmmm

I personally like how red and yellow look on dark blue cars like your DIB or my Kona Blue.

I am also a big fan of yello on blue, but that red on blue on the 2nd pic is too much... I think he should have went with smaller stripes.

Yeah, I would have stuck with 8" stripes. I think those might be 12" in the pic
