Anybody ever used the brake covers I see advertised in car mags? Seems like I've read that when you paint the calipers you gotta touch em up every year.

So how does it come back in the form of tax money? I was thinking you meant they could be claimed as an expense if the vehicle is registered as a corporate vehicle, just like gas money is tax deductible.

I see. What I meant was will the mods increase the value of our trucks? So will we see any return on investment (ROI) when we go to resell them? For example a home renovation increases the value of the home more than what the investment of the renovation was. If so what do the percentages look like? Otherwise it may be better just to part out the mods when the time comes to sell.

that depends solely on the mod, example would be on kbb, I listed it as having premium wheel(SRT REPs) and wider tires and it was worth a few hundred more. then I added on kbb, the stereo I installed. brought it up a little more. but also some mods negatively affect value. engine mods will lower it's value. right now I could get enough to pay it off and make a couple of grand off it. I can get nearly 13k for it. but kbb doesn't see mods

I've looked into this option a lot.. MGP is the best brand but they are not cheap.. Maybe like 150 for a plain set and 200+ for added logos. some people like them, some people absolutely hate them.. I figured if I painted them on my own since it would be a good project and I don't want to get the covers if they might make it look like I am trying to imitate brembos

I think the clean look and easy install attracts people but at the end of the day... It's a cover designed to look like something it's not
