Have the CTS-V front calipers, don't want to leave them silver. What color would look best on my BOM, BOM or stock Red, or something different? I am in the process of polishing my stock wheels. Post up your opinions.
Red would be the easiest as I wouldn't have to paint the rears, but thinking matching the car might look better.

I also have a BOM and am about to install my Wilwood kit I got on the awesome Duckman group buy about a year ago...yeah I know, slacker..........anyhoo, even though the BOM calipers look very well finished on the above car, BOM, to me, isn't the type of color to slather on everything. It becomes best when there are tasteful contrasts to it on other little accessories, and brake calipers is one of those things. I never liked the factory red on a BOM either, so I went with the default black powder coat. Yeah, I know, lame, however at that time I figured I would go with a blingy polished or hyper silver/chrome rim. Now I think I have decided on a gunmetal or matte black finish for wheels, which leads me back on a search for BOM caliper contrast colors....this is a tough one, you are not alone! I was thinking maybe staying with the black, or do a silver, light grey, but do the logo in BOM.
