You do realize a caliper painted kit is only 30 and will look 100X better than an overpriced piece of plastic?
You got a link?

That's of course just one persons opinion about what they think looks best based upon pricing and their own eyes. 🤔

I'm still debating on the red/black but it looks like black will win since red on an all black jeep just looks kind of standish to me

That scares me. If you can't mask off and paint calipers with a small brush then I don't want to be anywhere near your car after you try to bolt on these covers.

Mof, I think this is something we both can agree on. I don't see why some would cover the calipers and reduce brake cooling. That can potentially Lead to brake failure. Imo painted calipers are better and still retain proper cooling

These are not plastic. The plastic ones try to imitate the brembo or endless brake kits these dont.

Everyone has there own opinion some like the painted look some like the covers and the ones with the money will buy the real big brake kit.
