Caliper paint

Are their any rules for the paint color? I don't want to paint them the same color as the car.

honestly red would look good...but if you wanna be different from red think about bright yellow or a nice silver...black really blahs out the whole area at least to me..

These are the current rims on it. Not sure if that changes any opinions.

With those wheels, I would polish my calipers.
It makes them really stand out, but it retains the clean factory look.

on a red car if you dont go red you are left with oem silver, black, or dont paint them.... no other colors really work

Also dont paint the brake pads (where you can see the back of them) cover that up and cleaning the brakes good is the KEY to the job looking right.
