    Caliper covers or painted?

    I'm tired of looking at my ugly faded calipers. I've been looking at the MGP covers. Has anyone used them? I'm not a big fam of the painted caliper look but not sure of the quality of the covers.

    Re: Caliper covers or painted?

    I just looked them up and they look nice but how do they mount on there? They mention clips??? I seen some on Ebay that are Brembo knock offs and although they are cheap chinese ones they look nicer than those MGP ones lol. Now the chinese ones use Silcone Glue to mount them and the covers are made of ABS - can those really handle the caliper heat???

    I been looking into these since I have 24 inch rims and they sure would make the calipers stand out in a nice way but I keep thinking it would suck if they flew off and even worse someone saw it lol.

    Wow I think we are first people on here to mention this Caliper boob job lol.

    I like the smooth clean look..they are made of powder coated aluminumn and attach with clips..better than plastic and glued. bought a set of silver ones from a ebay dealer..$175.00 on sale

    So they are sturdy? Are the clips strong enough to handle 90 mph?

    nice but i would be afraid they would fly off while driving plus i have too many people that know me that would possibly see it if they did fly off.

    Where did you get the chrome molding that fits vertical on the window trim on both doors? It looks nice.
