Today's original equipment and aftermarket large diameter, thin spoke wheels look great, but they expose a lot of the mechanical parts behind the wheels that often don't look so great, particularly the brake calipers. You can paint your calipers, but it takes a lot of time and effort to do the job yourself, or a lot of money to pay someone to paint them for you. Plus there are considerations with painting beyond the initial paint job. The paint will often peel, even if the surfaces are meticulously cleaned, and even the best paint job probably won't stay looking good for more than a year. And no paint job will be able to do anything about the shape of the calipers, which often isn't that appealing.
The answer to your brake caliper appearance dilemma is MGP Caliper Covers. Caliper covers will make those rusty, unappealing calipers look exceptional, and so much more. MGP Caliper Covers are laser cut from rugged 6061-T6 aerospace aluminum, hydraulically formed to fit each specific caliper, and powder coated for a durable appearance that will last. These caliper covers will make any brake caliper look better, now and for years to come.
MGP Caliper Covers are available in your choice of finish, so you can have color that matches or contrasts with your wheels or paint. And speaking of wheels, with MGP Caliper Covers your wheels will stay much cleaner, because they help reduce brake dust. You'll also get reduced caliper temperatures with MGP Caliper Covers. When checked with an infrared thermometer gun, it was found that caliper cover equipped brake calipers were 30º-50ºF cooler than brake calipers without caliper covers. MGP Caliper Covers act as a heat sink, drawing heat out of the brake calipers, prolonging the life of brake system components and reducing the potential for brake fade.
Everything required for an easy installation is included with your MGP Caliper Covers, including detailed instructions. Clips are used to hold the caliper covers to the calipers, and the bridges that the clips attach to are TIG welded to the covers for strength. MGP Caliper Covers will not interfere at all with brake system operation and they're easy to remove and install when brake service is required.
MGP warrants these caliper covers against any manufacturer's defects for a period of 3 years from date of purchase. MGP Caliper Covers are proudly made in the USA.179.00 279.00

MGP (Marshall Genuine Products) is an American manufacturing company located in San Diego, California that specializes in brake caliper covers. Like many car enthusiasts, MGP President Mike Barland purchased large diameter, custom wheels for his car and subsequently found the exposed brake calipers aesthetically unappealing. He began MGP after finding aftermarket solutions for improving the appearance of his brake calipers unsatisfactory. MGP Caliper Covers are the culmination of 4 years of development, drawing on 26 years of engineering experience and technologies developed for the manufacturing of titanium, stainless steel and aluminum products for the aerospace and recreation industries. They add style and color to your vehicle, but also reduce brake dust and lower the caliper operating temperature.MGP® - Caliper Covers Reviews (6)Customers' rating: 4.5 OF 5APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY(4.5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYLooks Great, Easy Install| Posted by Kalin W. | 2010 Kia Forte (Saskatoon, SK)
For 2010 Kia Forte Koup SX. Fit is really tight, however takes about 30-40's a wheel to install. Looks great. Needed wheel spacers for front wheels, CARiD sent with order. Had to remove over winter because I went down to a 16" rim for winter tires.Was this review helpful for you?

These covers are great looking and are very sleek. They give my car a sportier look and keep my rims cleaner than when I didn't have them on. I give this product 5 out of 5 stars and recommend them for anyone interested in caliper covers over painting their calipers. Overall it was a very simple installation if you use a lift or a 2 ton jack instead of the factory jacks most cars come with.Was this review helpful for you?

I have a 2010 KIA Soul which I bought slightly used a month ago. The previous owner painted the calipers and the paint job was a mess after most of it chipped off. When I saw that compatible caliper covers were available from CARiD.com, I jumped at the chance of making the appearance of the calipers much better. I also purchased some after market rims from KIA. The day I received the caliper covers, I installed them myself. It was easy and a straightforward job. The clearances between the front covers and the inside of the fancy rims were close but fine. I also tried one of the original alloy wheels to check their clearance. They touched the caliper covers. I noticed that, on the packing slip for the caliper covers, there was a notation that spacers might be required to correct this. MGP supplied them for the cost of shipping. It only took a phone call. I am impressed with the really cool appearance of these caliper covers and the professional manner of business practice of CARiD. I recommend them.Was this review helpful for you?

Purchased MGP® - Caliper Covers RED for my 201 Kia Forte Koup. Nice product for the best price on the Internet. The front covers require wheel spacers, which are provided. They don't tell you that in the description. Also, had to call MGP for the spacers since they did not ship with the product. Nice product overall. Installation was pretty easy. The front ones took a while to adjust since of the tight clearance. Would purchase again.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
