Re: OK, I have my flame suit on, haha... Calipers

What about these plastic covers? Look OK, but being plastic, too risky??

Maybe you can paint the fake bolts with black touch up paint. I was thinking about buying these too, same color, and doing just that.

I just bought the same and filled in the MGP lettering and fake bolts with black paint. Turned out nice. See pics

I'm not a big fan of caliper covers, maybe that's just me.

I had mine painted like yours before. Looked good, but I got a great deal on the covers so figured I'd try them. Honestly, you can barely even see them since they're black. I'm not a huge fan of the other colors.

Re: OK, I have my flame suit on, haha... Calipers

They look nice . I wasnt aware of the fake bolts issue, so do they just snap over the stock calipers?

What's the benifet, "look cool" factor, or any benifit in braking? Lol

I might do it, but not for $200!

They say it helps with brake dust and cooling but who knows. Think it's mostly an appearance thing. Some people like it over the painted caliper. They come with clips and you screw the cover to the clip which is attached to the caliper. Simple, I didn't even remove my wheels.

I wouldn't worry about the flame suit on this site. There are members here that literally put different all season tires on their Jeeps because they think it makes them look tougher than their friends with Lexus RXs and BMW X3s. No, im not joking, its hilarious.
