My car is vogue silver metallic with gunmetal rims, im going with a silver so you can see the calipers better, but it wont be too flashy. I would recommend black or silver for your car, maybe a dark blue if you even want. I would avoid red and yellow. Ive always wanted to paint my calipers white (yes I know it would get dirty) but do not have the guts to, especially cause no other cars have had white calipers.

bronze

gold is too bright for your car
silver would blend in too well with the wheels
black would look eh
i never liked any non-metallic type colors, yellow, blue, ect... unless they are on aftermarket calipers then they look okay.

that's just my opinion, do they even make a bronze paint?

The thing with red is, it might stand out too much.

And the stock calipers aren't impressive looking at all, especially the rears, they are tiny.

on high performance cars, they are showing off 2, 4, 6, 8 piston calipers. The worst is seeing a car with drum brakes (like a lot of civics) in the rear paint them an attention grabbin color

I think red, stands out, goes along with your taillights and your corner lights? Are your corners amber or is that just the flash.
its just the flash, im just trying to add a bit of pazass here and there to make it my own. but i thing hpracing is right, bronze would prolly be the best, evertything else is to flashy and silver will just blend in. thnx for the feedback though

I would say either bronze or a dark gunmetal/ dark silver. Red wouldn't look good at all. i have red on my car(it's black though), and I think I may respray it this spring with dark silver/gunmetal. Good luck, just take your time doing it so you only do it once!
