If your calipers are nothing special to start with, a new coat of paint will not necessarily be your best solution. We're reminded of a famous adage about cosmetic products on a farm animal. Sure, you'll always have the option to upgrade your brakes, which will bring additional benefits to the performance department. But buying performance brakes with more attractive calipers means committing yourself to a longer life of more expensive pads and rotors. This investment is worth it if you're planning to get your car on the track. But are you ever actually going to put your car on the track?
What if you're just interested in a cosmetic upgrade? Caliper covers may be the solution you're looking for. Caliper covers are a snap to install, requiring only simple hand tools and access to the wheels' calipers. If you have a reliable jack stand and means for removing the wheel, you can install these caliper covers in the afternoon.
Ease of installation is only one advantage over painting of the caliper covers. Caliper covers can also help keep your wheels clean of the brake dust. The caliper covers redirect the dust from your brake pads to the rear of the vehicle, so less of it flies out onto the outer surfaces of your wheels. You spent a nice penny on those wheels, so wouldn't it be nice to save yourself from having to clean all the brake dust off every weekend?
Caliper covers also have additional benefits beyond appearance and ease of installation: they reduce the amount of brake dust on your wheels so that your car stays cleaner between washings. Contrary to some opinions, the increased surface area they add near the brakes reduces the overall temperature. MGP carried out tests with an infrared thermometer gun and found that their aluminum caliper covers acted as a heat sink, removed the heat from the brakes and reduced the caliper's temperature by 30° to 50°F.
