    MGP Caliper Covers with Vossen CV3 Rims. Opinions needed!

    I've got a 2011 black cts coupe and i've got some Black and Silver 20" Vossen CV3's on the way. I would like to get some Caliper Covers from MGP but am having trouble deciding between black and silver. My first instinct was to go red but because the 5 Spoke Vossens are spaced out the covers will be completely visible and I'm afraid they may look cheap so im now leaning towards silver with black engraving. What do you guys think?

    SILVER WITH BLACK ENGRAVING

    -OR-

    RED WITH WHITE ENGRAVING

    -OR-

    RED WITH BLACK ENGRAVING

    What does this have to do with performance?

    It's like a red or yellow sticker.

    Red with black or black with silver. Black with silver will be more low key and "clean" but red would be flashy

    G3 - paint them. No stickers. And powder coat the hats on your rotors while you are in there.

    I painted mine. Didn't notice them much with the stock wheels, but much more visible now with the satin black 5 spoke Lorenzos I just got. I get a ton of compliments now.

    Just make sure you use caliper or engine paint so that the paint is heat resistant.

    Added at least 5 horsepower.

    I just bought a set of caliper covers. I painted my calipers last year but they dont look so good this year. Hope they look better and easier to clean with the covers
    I got yellow with black writting. Kinda the V Look
