Default Red Brake Calipers (Yay or Nay)


If one were to get a new 2017 Stingray in Torch Red with the black painted aluminum wheels, is it a good idea to opt for the bright red brake calipers?

I don't think the grey ones look horrible or anything, but the red does stand out nicely in contrast with the black wheels.

Yay or nay? Just wanted some input from other members of the forum.


** Thanks for any responses and have a GREAT day!! **

Yay

Red will "pop"
Black will be "invisible"
Grey...not special.

So many C7's with Red calipers that they aren't that special either. Even my Racing Yellow is an a anomaly since most have yellow calipers and mine are black.

my preference on a torch red/black wheels would be (if interior black) black calipers.. if interior is red i would do either red (safe, but pops), black (safe) or yellow(bold and daring exotic-esque)

Red calipers are a must on a Torch Red C7, even with black aluminum wheels.

I prefer as little contrast as possible. That is 2 color contrasts. Do black and red. Don't do black red grey. Even the chrome with red and black is too much goin on for me

Black wheels tho so much harder to clean as soooooo much better

Yay, a must. If you get your car and later want the red calipers it will cost you $$$ to get them from GM.
