Covers make the brakes look so cheap. Do it right, paint them! I would go green as well.

Then I would put a green pinstripe on the outer edge of your rims!

Paint them. Much cheaper, and you can do any color you want, and change it at minimal cost if you don't like it.

Actually, I'm really curious to see what you go with... I want to paint mine (granted they won't look as nice as the brembos) but I can't decide whether red is a bit much or not. I'm leaning towards black, but I have bright silver rims so it should work ok....

By the way, I REALLY like your black-out look! Those accent stripes look very sharp!

Thanks for the compliments! I'm going to go with the painted black and green brembo decals.
