red is nicest in my opinion, but bronze sounds good too.

I thought about bronze myself, but talk about a hard color to find.

i have a red accord and painted my calipers red. once my paint started chipping off i went to black paint. Now that i look back, red calipers kind of made the car look cheap. imo, go with a gray color or solid black...you dont really want to attract attention to the calipers since their pretty ugly hahahahha. BUT if i got a BBK like a rotora or brembo 4 piston caliper brakes, red would be the only color i'd get cause those calipers actually look good.

black. Red is tacky and we're not in high school anymore. Unless you have expensive bbk or own an exotic, i think there is no point in showing off our puny a$$ ugly stock calipers by painting it in tacky red. It makes the car look cheap and ricebois do this all the time now. Just do dark grey or gloss black. my 2cents.

I'd get some drilled rotors + gloss black. stock blanks don't really do it for me when it comes to anything bigger than 17".

I like the custom "I didn't paint my calipers so they look aftermarket" look. No one has done that yet.
