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!

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

Hadn't even considered blue. I definitely want something that's gonna stand out!

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.

G2 says it's their Yellow caliper paint.

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

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 :-)

I had C6 corvett that was silver with black rims. I ened up painting the calipers yellow and it came out amazing!!! I would defiantly do it.
