Exclamation new caliper covers

I drive a 2010 2LT RS Camaro, black with white racing stripe. I was looking at Brembo brake caliper covers, as my current wheels do not go good with the black paint. I have two questions, that maybe someone in this forum could answer: 1) What size (Small, Medium, or Large) brake caliper covers should I get for my car? and 2) Are Brembo brake caliper covers sturdy enough to last me a while? Thanks!

We put a set on a 88 Iroc for fun we have no issues so far but these are not really made by Brembo

Personally, I think fake caliper covers are just tacky. If you want flash, paint your V6 brakes or upgrade to real Brembos and feel the braking power of those babies.

not a fan of it but you have to admit it looks alot better than stock and for 1/50th of the price of a real brembo kit

some people just want the look and dont want pay the 49/50 of the other cost just so they can brake a few feet less from 60 mph

im talkin about the v6 brakes of course


if your gunna use those covers at least get bigger, drilled rotors

Upgrade to the real deal, I did. Best mod so far (springs and sways are a very close second).

Bought a brand new take-off set from Fesler. It has been a while but I think I paid $500, included rotors, calipers, pads and lines.

Lol I don't think he meant it. Anyways, camarowa do you really think the Brembo upgrade was worth it ? I've had a few people say the brakes on the V6 are nicer than the Brembo's but I just don't see how that could be. Anyways, I'm just wondering If it's really worth it, I don't race and I just don't like the look of the stock Calipers, but I don't want to spend $500 on Brembo's just to have the calipers.

$500 is incredibly cheap from the prices I've been paying. I'm slowly accumulating all my parts and paid $490 shipped for entire front kit and rear rotors shipped. Still having a ton of trouble finding a set of rear calipers.

try these, they aren't brembo wannabe's, from calipercovers.com, the MGP brand

You can put them on without taking the wheels off if you have 20's

I don't get why some people call the caliber covers " tacky " I to have a V6 and do not plan or racing the car or want to spend $500-$1000 dollars to just prove I have brembo brakes. I've seen painted calibers but to me not my choice . So Fla..if you like the "fake" brembo covers add them and maybe I'll join the tacky club. Looks nice in the wheels to me.

Brembo brakes have a much firmer feel and a lot less fade. Fading was my biggest disappointment with the stock v6 brakes. The $500 I spend included everything; bigger rotors, calipers/pads and brake lines. Just check the forum for other v6 owners who upgraded to the brembo's. I think you'll find the general consensus to be very positive.

ok, let me clarify. I need caliper covers. I cannot afford a whole Brembo kit. No one can convince me of not buying caliper covers, I just need help. I am buying them online, and I am looking on eBay. They have different sizes for caliper covers. Does a 2010 2LT RS Camaro with 20's have small, medium, or large brakes. If anyone knows this, that would be REALLY helpful. I appreciate everyone's enthusiasm (especially chicagobulls yelling at us), but this was my original question, and it has not been answered yet.
