Re: caliper covers

A did a bit of research, there's no data that shows that these covers can fail prematurely or otherwise. Also, I doubt that anyone here has a race car able to heat up the calipers to create a huge damage to the components. + I dont have the lettuce $$ to buy real ones.. I think if you use your car for regular commute you will be fine.. That's why I would like opinions from people who has it for a long time to get more to work with..

Re: caliper covers

I would be worry of the damage it may cause between the rotating wheel and brake components if it does manage to fall off.

How do they attach?

With glue. Imagine it breaks off while driving. It's a recipe for disaster

Re: caliper covers

My issue isnt the cover, whether you prefer it over painting the calipers or just want the bbk look but the safety of it. I would be careful when installing this.

Opinions are not needed with science.

You're essentially trapping heat in a component that performs better when properly ventilated. Why would you want to weaken something meant to keep you, your passengers, and the people around you safe?
So you can have pretty calipers and fool people into thinking you have a BBK?
I guess if the next guy were to jump off a bridge you'd follow him. No bueno.
