BLUE Painted Calipers on 17" Black Alloys

Anyone have photos of their 2012+ w/17" Black alloys and BLUE painted calipers?

I want to paint my calipers blue to match my car color but I'd like to see how it looks with the Black 17" Wheels like the one's I have. Thanks.

I've seen it done with plastidipped 16's and it looked good. I think it'll look better than red.

I don't like the red personally, but lots of people like it.

Don't mind my opinion lol.

I have the Duplicolor blue kit awaiting use, but I've not had time to do it yet.

I can't imagine that it won't look good, but I would be concerned with it matching your blue. With a neutral color car like mine, that's not really a concern.

Yellow calipers for me - whenever my parents' / friends' / neighbors' cars stop falling apart and I get a weekend to actually look at my car.
