Red Brake calipers options

Have 2020 RS. Really like the look of red calipers...looking for other options besides the expense of changing them out. I dont like the idea of painting.. I did see some aluminum covers on a site that look good...looking for some advice and opinions

My son has a 2015 rs convertible. He has the caliper covers from MGP. I must say they look really nice on his car. His car is black with the black covers. Sorry I don't have any pictures. He does claim that they cut down on the wheels getting dirty quickly.

Previous car was a 2014 Camaro RS Bright Yellow. Man what a great car that was. Just a fun, great riding car.

Painting the calipers isn't that difficult. I used the brush on product from DUPLI-COLOR. My suggestion would be to purchase a better brush than what comes in the kit. After a tire/wheel is removed, it took me less than an hour to do each caliper after cleaning thoroughly with brake cleaner for adhesion. The paint dries quickly. I used just one heavy coat, flowing it on evenly. Many people use two coats.

You couldn't tell that mine were not oem powder coated. I found a vendor who makes replacement caliper decals if you want that detail. A light coat of high temperature gloss clear will seal it easily.

VHT also has a kit. An aerosol product would go on quicker but require masking.

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure the calipers are painted rather than powder coated from the factory. I may be wrong though

With the caliper covers, you just need to make sure there is enough clearance with your wheels.

Personally I think they look great from a distance but a little cheesy up close because they do not mirror the shape of the caliper enough.

I have a 2SS and these are a direct swap from the black to the red.

Paint or powder coat

Painting isn’t difficult and it is cheap. I did my trucks brakes few months ago
