Looking for opinions on caliper color.

What color of caliper paint do you all think would look best on my car. I'm thinking silver or black, but I'm open to all opinions. Thanks.

Idk if you'll agree but I think yellow is different and will make them scream for attention. Depends on what your personal tastes are.

I vote for black. Everyone seems to go red which is fine but IMO stock calipers are ugly. With the black whls the black callipers won't be very noticeable (they'll blend in). Good luck regardless of what colour you choose. BTW a local speed shop charges $400 to powder coat re and re the callipers, that's the route I'm going.

my fav was the yellow because it matches up with your front turn signal gives it a nice flow

Auto zone sells caliper paint for ten bucks. Or we just plasti dipped my buddies caliper covers and that's holding up pretty well itself. And if you really want powder coat, you can buy a powder coat kit yourself, or pay a private powder coat business to do. It will be way cheaper than 4

Also, I think black or the amber would be cool
