    SOM T/A, Paint Color for Calipers?

    What do you guys think of Yellow calipers with Black brackets? If not, give me some ideas, possibly with pics. I have Black ZR'1 wheels. Thanks.

    I would go with SOM to match the car, or black to match the wheels. I think the yellow would look weird.

    I'd go SOM with maybe silver decals and brackets. That would look pretty damn good I think.

    I went with black. Sexy WS6 Mama on here has yellow trim on her SOM bird - looks a lot better than I would have imagined, but I don't know if she did the calipers.

    Her car isn't so much yellow as goldish. Kinda inbetween I guess. Yellow would look like ass I think.

    Do you have a side shot of the car? If so post that up and see if some of our photoshop guys will photoshop the yellow on there and see if you'll like it.

    But I say go witht the SOM or black I think yellow would throw it off but then again I've never seen it before.

    I'd go silver before black. It'll stand out a little. Black will just blend in with the black rims.

    I stand corrected. I'm pretty sure it used to be yellow, but her current pics are gold for sure.

    (Oh, and her calipers appear to be black.)

    Yea, but her rims aren't black. Black rims and calipers won't look good, in my opinion. SOM will look sick.
