Would these fit?

I like these mgp red caliper covers not sure if they would fit, my 2015 gc altitude. Any insight would be great.
MGP® - Jeep Grand Cherokee 2014 Caliper Covers with Jeep Engraving

Also any other suggestions on how to get red calipers as 199$ is in my opinion expensive


Thanks

Re: Would these fit?



Just paint them with G2 or Duplicolor caliper paint.
Hundreds of how to threads about it on the internet.
No caliper covers.

Re: Would these fit?

The short answer is yes they will fit. There is a lot of personal opinion on this forum against caliper covers, but it comes down to personal choice - it's your vehicle do what makes you happy and looks good to you.

These pics aren't the greatest resolution but this is how they look on my MY13. On my Ram 1500 I'm just going to paint the calipers instead and be able to compare which lasts longer, looks better etc., but I've had these for over a year checking at tire rotation times with no break dust or debris issues.

Thanks. I appreciate the feedback. Awesome jeeps btw. I'm still debating over covers or paint. My only real concern is the price. But so far I've been quoted 3 times to paint them near the same amount for the covers.

A monkey can paint calipers. The kit is $35.

The caliper covers and wheels look good on your Jeep, BigCat.

I actually recommend Dupicolor over G2 because it's ceramic based.
The G2 has a paint and activator mix which you'll need to use all at one time or throw the excess out.

You can mask around the caliper while it's on and since this is applied with a brush there's no need to worry about over-spray.

Like I said ...hundreds of reviews and videos online.

Those are nice, steep but nice.
I wonder how they effect heat displacent? Can't figure how they say they run cooler.

I like the look also. But the price is ridiculous and also I found a link that said they actually cause more heat than cooling. So I decided to just paint them.

Re: Would these fit?

I looked at those before and ended up getting them thru Ebay, they are Brembo Caliper Covers and I like the way they look, I was concerned they wouldnt stick for too long...but they are still there, in the pic they look a little bit too shiny because they were brand new, these days they look much better.
