    there is a high temp paint called aluminum and it is silver in color, paint it that with some black decals, would look good, or look for one closer to pewter if you can find it.

    Without a black or darker rim on such a light color red would stand out too much so I agree...go with something almost a different shade of the car

    I Say Black, With The Brackets Still Aluminum. Red Starts To Look Crappy When Dirty.

    people will tape off the whole wheel well but ive found that you dont need to do that much hassle, just spray it down with brake cleaner, wash it, then get a plastic grocery bag and stick it over the rotor, then just spray the caliper, the stream from the paint can is so small that you really dont get any overspray.

    Do something that matchs the paint scheme of the car. Pewter would go nice with the black wheels.

    I dont know other good colors other than red. But i guess if you would want to go different i would spend a little more money and get the calipers polished
