Help me decide on caliper color

Could someone please photoshop/change the color of my stock silver calipers to red in one pic and yellow in another? It's hard to see in this pic but I applied yellow overlays to the small bowtie outline in the center of the wheels and they look good so I was wondering if yellow calipers would also. Of course red usually looks good. Thanks!

IMO calipers on a dark car should contrasts with it's color and on a clear paint like white, yellow they look better with same car color calipers.

The inner wheels are dark and calipers don't show much if in a dark color like black.

I have caliper cover on my Rally Yellow with Yellow calipers.

No disrespect to the above poster but don't do a cover. They look cheap and... well like a cover in person.

I painted my own calipers. It takes time but mine look flawless... I'm not patting my own back. I have maybe $50 in them total... and time. I can give you tips or help you if you want. You would be out your car for several days to do it right to allow the paint to cure.

Thanks to all for the replies/opinions. Looks like red wins and I can't argue with that. I already have red caliper paint from a previous car so that's another reason to go red.

Did you bake them or just spray and let them dry. I did mine on my third gen but they don't look that nice. I used the caliber paint from autozone.
