I love those things....... hey look at me, I have an 70k truck and decided to put cheap covers on my calipers to make it look like i have a big break kit. Just screams honda civic. Saw them on a brand new corvette with dealer plates the other day and couldn't believe someone put that crap on a vette LOL.

Don’t do covers, if you have a rim that lets the calipers show, I’d paint them color match your truck, but not covers, they really look cheap.,just remember you become a slave to upkeep the look once you go that route.
Or bite the bullet and go better brake system, then you get color and killer braking.

I would not recommend caliper covers. They insulate heat on your calipers and negatively impact your brake cooling. I would paint or powder coat your calipers instead of using caliper covers.
