I'm having alloy wheels redone on Monday along with brake calipers. What colour would you spray the calipers? The fronts are big enough to be a bright colour but the backs aren't. I wanted red initially but worried the backs would look a bit laughable in red where they would stand out. Did think of doing them all silver and playing it safe. I do like bright in your face colours though. Let me know what you think.

A vibrant blue or even dark blue would look good.

I've gone red as I was unaware that heat resistant paint can't be mixed so couldn't have the gordini blue. I could of had it without the heat resistant technology in it but peeling would look bad.

Red is an excellent choice mate 👍

Cheers mate! Was a custom made stainless cat back from MIJ Exhausts in Wolverhampton. Cost just over £300 and has lifetime guarantee.
It’s not too noisy, just a nice burble. 😊👍🏻
