Heck, I'd rather put electric pickles on my calipers, than use fake-caliper-wanna-be, caliper covers.

To any that I may have offended, I am so very sorry. It was just my completely insensitive and biased, public service announcement for the day.

LOL, true Frank!

I do think an "electric pickle" themed wheelskin would be pretty sick.

Is there a problem with Wheelskins? Do they look horrid installed or something? I was seriously considering one to cover the sticky rim in my '92 Toyota pickup.
