Default Help Opinions On Caliper Color

I plan on painting my calipers soon.

I am torn on these color options:

Yellow, Red, Orange.

I like the idea of Red, just feel like it is really common.

Understand your concern with RED, but feel that is the way to go....

Ya red seems to be what all my friends and family suggest.
Yellow sounds like a good option, i just have not seen it before.

Yellow with Blue...? Not a bad color contrast either. Now I'm confused too....!!

I hear you on the red. Nothing wrong with it but it seems like it's all too common. I haven't done mine yet just because I don't know what color I want to do them in.

I was leaning towards yellow but then I found a pic of a LMB car with yellow and I didn't really like it.

I like the blue on the ZR1's but not sure how that would look with LMB.

Post up some pics if and when you do them.

Hum, I did mine red on Lemands blue. Black wheels and chrome wheels. Doesn't really flow that well. Going to be doing mine Leland's blue next week to match the body color. They really stand out with the z51 brake rotors. Here's red. Not the best pics... but..can't post pics, but these links are pics

Just a thought - how about a dark red (something like CRM) rather than a bright red? That's what I'm considering for my AW coupe (along w/gloss black).
Enjoy,

Red or Le Mans Blue - yellow or orange would look 'cheap' with your car color, imho

Thanks! Your car looks great also. Blue looks awesome with some stripes. I love my stripes. I've since blacked out all the lights, I'll post up my pics when I do the blue.

If you wanna be unique paint them the same silver as your stripe and the "corvette" logo on the caliper the same blue as your car...would tie it all together
