White, definitely. Black calipers will get lost in the black rims.

White would look SICK....... I just received my gloss black AMR with Nitto Invo 18 - 9

The only thing I can tell you to check is the weights on the rims. I installed my wheels in my garage and took her for a drive. Well, about 200 feet down the road all of the weights on all of the rims flew off dinging my wheel wells.

Oh yes I called American Muscle and complained. Of course they have great customer service and apologized that happened to me. They told me to take it and have them balanced and fax or email a copy of the invoice so I would be reimbursed.

It's pretty impractical to have white calipers. They'll look like shyt within a month. Besides, why would you want to draw visual attention to the stock brakes? Yer call, of course but, you asked for opinions.

White if you ask me,will make them stand out nicely and match your current theme.

Why would I paint my calipers like everyone else does who doesn't need aftermarket brakes ? Lol appearance duh lol but like you said to each his own I'm thinking white and if it looks liked crap after a while could spray them again. Guna use engine enamel first then maybe covers thanks

A rhetorical question, just like your original one, apparently:

Why do people ask for opinions when they've already made up their mind, then get all shirty when someone contradicts their preconceived plan?

Hmmm...life is full of these little idiosyncratic ironies of the human social enterprise....

You should get the brembo caliper covers to cover those ford focus brakes.

Brake dust + white = dirty looking white in no time. May not be practical because white will show brake dust so fast. But it looks like you have large spokes on those rims... so you can probably get to them easily to clean them periodically.
