    Personally I'd go black. I painted mine red and they are a bugger to keep clean. I'll be re-doing mine black at some point this summer.

    I wouldn't go red on a red car, it's been done to death a little also. I went silver on my old (black with black wheels) car and liked it, but it worked well with the black... I would have to agree with black, I'm going gold on mine when I finally get around to it. Gold may work on yours though.

    Silver FTW then - I can probably dig out a picture of my old car with silver calipers and black wheels if it's of any help?
