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.
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.179.00Brand: MGP Part Number: 12043-S-MGP-RD

I purchased the red caliper covers for my Ram 1500. They were extremely easy to install and look fantastic on my truck. CARiD had them delivered within a few days. They have competitive pricing and great customer service.Was this review helpful for you?

I bought a set of these caliper cover for my 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 and I couldn't be happier. I got them in a custom color and the lead time was about 3 weeks, fit is perfect and the really look incredible. I have the 20" chrome wheels and didn't have to remove them to install the covers, just carefully placed them inside the wheel and rotated them up to the caliper, install only took about 15 minutes. The only con I can think of is that the paint seems a little more delicate then I would have hoped, bumped into the wheel with one and left a small scuff. Once installed, they are pretty well shielded from road debris though.Was this review helpful for you?

I order these cover and received them in about a week in an half and I was very impress with them. I have an 2011 Dodge Ram and let me tell these are off the chart. I have gotten many comment with Caliper Cover it set off my ram. I also have a red ram with the red cover and they look good if I said so myself. It took me about two to three minutes a tire because the way my rims are I just put them in between the wheels to get to my caliper. They made my truck look really sporty so I would recommend these if you want your truck look different.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
