I’d be going brighter as they’re lost with those wheels IMO
I was thinking gold or silver. Really not sure though.
I think silver could get lost a little against the discs?

That’s true, maybe go bold and do gold then :roll:

Can always change them if they look pants

Gold or Blue for me, both OEM colours for big brake kits on various models and they look good. Beyond that, go mad. Had a friend with a blue Jag F Type SVR who went for luminous lime green calipers, looked really good shockingly!

Wow, 225 40s on 19s - it must be tight under that wheel arch!

I would go for red or yellow

Paint the K sport in the same grey as the wheels and you’re winning!

The gold looks great, and painting the K sport in grey that'll finish them off nicely. :thumbsup:
