Color My calipers

Ok, I have ordered the CTSV calipers, I have a white csr with black wheels. My current calipers are powdercoated black and they get lost in the wheel. I do not want a white caliper due to keeping them looking good. I have Blue LEDS under the hood for night. Need help with ideas for caliper color, was thinking Blue, Red is oe. Give me some ideas.....

Red goes good with black. You have black wheels. Silver or white won't make a statement like red, orange, yellow or blue if that is what you want. Red is kinda the performance standard color for calipers. Add the large Brembo only decal in white for contrast and to tie in with the white. Try a little paint or Photoshop first to get ideas if nothing from forum members strikes you right. Good luck with your decision.

I went with Red and silver Brembo lettering as I was concerned with white showing brake dust too easily.

Leaning towards Brembo Gold or metallic Silver. I like red, but everyone has red, dare to be different...

Red is always cool. A blue close to your lighting color would be nice. Another option that would look cool against the white and the blue lights would be yellow. Like Velocity Yellow on the C7.

I agree with Chase and think a blue would look sweet. These are Blue azure metallic we did for a customer a while back.

Best regards,
