    I can see that damn rusty thing every time I walk up. I am leaning toward black or silver. Before it rusted it was silver.

    I'm kind of biased toward silver. Think it would brighten up nicely.

    yea, to be honest when it was silver I never noticed it. now that it is rust it drives me nuts. (if you can't tell) So much for the "special coating" they put on to prevent rust. I think that they have been on for less than 6 months. This is the only one rusting.

    I just dont see your truck as the kind to have red calipers.

    Got ya Mike......I also could see the rust on mine every time I walked-up to my truck, and I went with Painting them Black along with the Hub Part of the Rotor's as well.

    **Edit:....Mike you mentioned
    "special coating" are the Rotors you have from SSBC??....

    I'm a little late chiming in, but here's my 2 cents, hehe.

    Red looks good on a black truck; but not good on a silver truck,
    Black would cover up the rust and not look too bad,
    Silver would cover up the rust, but might get dirty faster than the darker colours,
    Ya know, I think I like the idea of using blue; blue and silver is a nice combo.

    I like being different, polish them then cover it with a clear coat.
    It'll look close to silver with raw metal.

    i was going to paint my calipers a while back like you, but found a way easier method....
    when i was doing all my work after spring break on axles, brakes, etc. i just went ahead and bought new calipers already painted...

    go check out
    www.rockauto.com

    and go to your vehicle, i just checked for you and powerstop sells the front pair for $84.00, and the rear for $82.00, and thats before you return the cores for money back, thats the route i went, and ill never change it,
    4 NEW powerstop powdercoated RED brake calipers for $100.00 and some change.... check it out

    Red has been standard table fair for chevy street rods for decades, but I tend to agree with several others here that black or a color match would best suit your truck. given the wheels that you have. Thinkin a bold color would stand out like a hammered thumb. lol.
