Looking to choose a custom caliper color for my car. I've narrowed it down to 3 choices. Please give me your opinions on which color you'd choose, if any. Thanks!

First choice is:
Sublime Green Dodge

Second choice is:
Race Red Ford

Third choice is:
Surf Blue Dodge

Picture of my car:

I'm painting the rear drums with G2 Black. Pic of the rear:

I'm with Matt. After seeing the blue on his, I'm pretty sure I made the wrong choice buying a red paint kit. Mine is Sterling Grey w/black wheels, so not far from what you have. I haven't painted mine yet, and I'm considering buying another paint kit in blue and ditching the red.

Personally, I'd do black for the calipers too. I've never been a big fan of randomly painted ones.

I did all black already. Looking to try something new. I've had blue, red, silver, black, & atlas blue metallic. I really liked silver. Just wanna try something bright this time
