Painting them is cheaper. Depends on if you want to spend much or not

The covers would look better up close and far away but are kinda pricey. Like he just said they would stay cleaner and easier to clean

Also the black caliper covers look good and guy at my gym has em, couldn't tell for the longest time, thought he upgraded the calipers cause he had sloted rotors too, but the red covers look cheesy

I'm painting mine in spring, I just don't like the idea of a cover.

Painted Calipers, give the appearance of a quality factory look, as opposed to the covers, that look a cheap add on IMHO, although they are not cheap, and obviously do NOT have a factory appearance.

So black covers look good opposed to the red? And I want to know how the Nitto motivo ultra season high ones are in the snow because I get bad winters here

Painting them is easy and cheap. The covers are more pricey. I've always painted mine, it's about an 3 hour job for all calipers and prep work

I used duplicolor caliper paint. I'm not sure their might be diff shades. Go to you're local hardware store and browse through their paint
