Help picking a caliper paint color

Hey guys - need some help choosing a caliper paint color for my Mineral Gray 2012 Overland. I know red is pretty much the "go to" color for caliper paint, but I'm thinking yellow might look good too. Thanks in advance for your input!

Re: Help picking a caliper paint color

Yellow looks good with black or silver cars. Red goes well with MG, but blue would stand out more.

Re: Help picking a caliper paint color

This picture on G2's Facebook page is what got me thinking that yellow might look pretty good. It's a CTS-V with roughly the same paint color as my Mineral Gray. Then again, the CTS-V is a much sportier car than my Overland.

Re: Help picking a caliper paint color

I'd either stick with the oem look or go black for a clean look. IMO, no reason to draw attention to std calipers.

Re: Help picking a caliper paint color

I know some will disagree with me, but a yellow or red caliper would look so out of place on a luxury SUV. Red looks great on the SRT8 sure, but that has soooo much else on the vehicle to compliment such a thing.Not only that, but the calipers on the non-SRT8's are hardly worth showing off.
If I were going to paint the calipers on my 2012 Mineral Grey Overland (which is infact what I own), I would go with a gloss black. That would keep it clean, not stand out and scream "hey I spray painted my calipers", and still match other parts on the vehicle that are black.

On my own Overland I will not be painting the calipers. I kind of like the look of all the new parts in there and with mineral grey all the colors are perfect as is. My point is, the Overland is not a red caliper kind of vehicle lol. I have been told I have pretty good taste in my vehicles and mods so take my opinion for what its worth :-)
