MGP caliper covers on non-rs v6?

I'm thinking about either painting the stock calipers red or getting caliper covers, but I'm not sure if it will fit the LT stock wheels.

Although some people do install the caliper covers, they are not really a very common modification on this forum. If you're not sure the covers will fit, I recommend you go ahead and paint them red, it's a lot cheaper and still looks good.

Paint...NO COVERS!

BTW, RS doesn't have anything to do with the brakes. The same brakes on all V6 no matter if it's RS or not. Same goes with an SS. All SS have the same brakes no matter if it's an RS or not.

Currently researching this can you add why not?

There are only 2 sizes of brakes. All v6 models will have the same size brake and covers will fit all wheels. I chose the covers for 2 reasons. One being is that without the covers fitting over the brakes, painted calipers just look small and dinky. The other reason is I was set on getting a bright color (yellow) and the covers cover up more dust and film from the brakes. So the covers reduce the amount of brake dust you see. My covers are yellow and I usually never have to wash them only when I was the car once a week.

Personally I like my covers too. I appreciate the purist's who detest them, but 99% of people don't know the difference and they don't look bad!
In fact I've had a lot of compliments...

And the guys that know can think I'm "all show and no go"... cause I'm not.
