What size are they? Stock Pony Package rims.
I want to order these carbon fiber brake calipers but want to make sure they fit, size is front 10.5 " x 3" (26.5 x 7.5 cm) and Rear 9.5" x 2.5" (23.5 x 6 cm)

:uhh:

I'd say if you can paint them then paint them!.. It's a little more time consuming but it does look better and is usually cheaper too!.. Just my opinion!..

They're actually the same price if not cheaper than the painted ones, if I don't do these ill just paint them black, but they would match my antenna.

painting them is VERY easy, and a lot cheaper, spend the money you save on something better

Come on Jet, get those creative juices flowing! I wonder how hard it would be to grind the face of your calipers smooth and using an engraver to do something like your radiator cover! Now that's something original! That's something Jet! What do ya think?

I do have a dremel drill....
You know what I'm down ill research how I could smooth those down and how deep I can drill, sketch it up this week maybe just write "JetWolf" on the front calipers and 4.0 on the back then emboss it in red or chrome. Huh? Yeah?
