Plasti Dipped Wheels

I plasti dipped the wheels and now i am trying to decide on what color to do my caliper. I dont really want it red bc it wont match the color code of my car so im thinkin silver to match the lugs and rotor and mazda emblem... any ideas?

Personaly, I find that black mags with black calipers look like rims when rolling... I prefer silver caliper and black disc.

I say if you painted the calipers and lugs the same color as the car it'd look really good.

Normally i'd say black to keep the sweet black/red theme going but to be honest i think it'd look pretty sweet if you left the lugs and center of the rims silver and painted your calipers a chrome color. it'd definitely stand out but just my opinion tho
