    Default opinions needed. caliper paint color

    I need some opinions. One of the calipers that I installed is rusted, I am looking at painting all of them. I am taking any suggestions on paint color and paint type to use? I am looking at the duplicolor brush on ceramic caliper paint kit, I can get it in red, blue, silver or black. I may just go with black, but that is no fun. here is a pic of the truck

    Most paint to match the truck. But not sure on how many people make silver caliper paint.

    I can get the duplicolor brush on caliper paint in Red, blue, black or silver. At this point neon pink would look better than rust

    If you want really good contrast with the wheels I'd go with red or blue I think that would look really nice.

    yea, see, that is where I am stuck. Do I go with contrast like red or blue or do I go with silver that does not attract that much attention. I am just sick of looking at the rusted caliper every time I walk up to the truck

    Do you like the truck turning heads or to you want to keep it more subtle. Red seems to look nice on any vehicle in my opinion.

    I am not one that wants to turn heads. Sure, I keep my truck clean, it gets washed twice a week on average. But, I don't like to attract any more attention than I already get. I do like the way red looks. I was just curious what others thought. Blue would match my bilstein shock boots

    I looked at a set of caliper covers like @Enkeiavalanche has. But, for $200 I can almost buy 4 new calipers.

    Black. That truck does not scream for colored calipers.

    Mike....x2 on going with Black, as with the Rims you have, you really can't see the Calipers.
