What color of caliper covers

I'm going for the blacked out look but wondering if some bright caliper covers would work? Any thoughts?

I'd caution against the green, lol, I LOVE our green cars but some people put it on a little thick...

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!

I think red is going to be a bit "christmas-y" - TOO much contrast. Unfortunately to keep it clean looking, I think your only options are a full match of the same green, silver or black...

I think green would be pretty unique.

Green might be to much green and red would look like Christmas...hmmmmm. What about gold like on the 350z. Might look good against the green and black wheels.

Green might be good if you are blacking everything else out. I have the polished rims so the stock black Brembo's look good for me.

Did you paint the "hub" part of your rotors? Mine are starting to get discolored/rusty and need some attention. Trying to decide if I should go with silver again or maybe make them black.

Caliper cover do not belong on the SS brembos. Take the time and do it right, paint the calipers.

I would either do green, or leave them alone. They are basically blacked out already, and sliver wouldn't really stand out.

What if you left them black, but added green lettering for Brembo and Camaro?

I second that idea
- Airaid cold air intake - Kooks 1 7/8 long tube headers
- Kooks high flow cats - Borla atak 2.5" cat back exhaust - Dyno tune - AFM delete - 94 octane tune - Vitesse paddle shifters - Blacked out rims - Costum painted engine cover - T3 stripes - GM locking gas cap

DO NOT get caliper covers on an SS, are you crazy? Why cover up the brembos with big goofy caliper covers? Leave that to the ugly stock v6 calipers.

Paint them with G2 caliper paint, and add the brembo decals.

I think something more subtle than green calipers. Paint them a black or metallic black, but get Green Brembo decals to go on them.

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