Re: Would these fit?

MGP caliper covers don't "stick" to anything they are attached with metal clips and screws AND they aren't intended to impersonate actual Brembo calipers

Rgds.
Those look fantastic! No problems with over heating? And how long you've had them on?

No over heating, no issues whatsoever, they've been there for a little over 5 months now.

Big Cat, these do stick, they are not attached to anything, no metal clips or screws, you use glue to stick them, and its up to personal taste to liike them or not, in my case...I do like them.

Re: Would these fit?

If anything they will cause brake components to fail prematurely because they trap heat in and under the caliper.

I wouldn't put that garbage on a $500 Honda.


Stick on?? You better hope that's some strong glue or they're going to do some serious damage if they come off at a high speed.


Wait ...you also have a train horn. Enough said.

Believe me, I had them on for 5 months, gone offroading with them, on the roads speeds of over 110 miles per hour, never had a problem with heat, they seem to be light plastic, in the worst scenario the plastic would break without damaging any metal..and that is the worst scenario, I like to think more of how much I enjooy the looks of them every day, if we always think of the worst scenarios we would never leave our houses !..
Enjoy, have a great day....and some day if you are nice enough I might let you hear my train horn !..ha,ha
Mofsteel..you have a nice Jeep...I just wonder if you ever really used it..mine has all the toys including the caliper covers, train horn and much more.......here is a pic of my Jeep for your enjoyment. Rgds.

How do they cover? The first pic you posted they seemed like it didn't cover the entire caliper?

Hi there,
They cover the entire caliper, sorry, I dont have any close up pics, just look for them in Ebay and you'll find them, price is aprox. $ 22.00, for that price my thought was that it was worth trying them...and at least for me the end results were very good.

Re: Would these fit?

It's fairly obvious from Victor's pics and the eBay ads that these won't cover the full caliper and they're the most unsafe application.
They're only $25 for a reason.

Re: Would these fit?

by the way...I dont sell them !!..ha,ha...I just like them...and I think Mofsteel doesnt like them at all !..ha,ha....
Well, the important thing is that each person is entitled to their own opinion...I still love them and I still think (like the pics in the add that Mofsteel kindly sent) that they cover the whole caliper.
Have a great day.

PS: 5 months of use, on road and off road.....sorry but dont think they are unsafe, they are just an accesory and thats all.

Re: Would these fit?

They sell caliper paint. Cheaper is engine paint, it comes in more colors and is rated for the same temperature.
