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: 12162-S-MGP-SM

I ordered caliper covers for my 2012 Dodge Challenger. The first set I received was the wrong size. It was my fault for ordering the wrong size. I called customer service, and they were awesome with assisting me in returning them and placing a new order. I placed the order, and in 3 days, I had my new caliper covers. I highly recommend ordering from CARiD. I will be ordering again. Thank you.Was this review helpful for you?

They went on easily and looked great, and they didn't break the bank. It took me approximately 15 minutes per wheel, and that includes the time I used to clean the wheel wells and the inside of the wheels themselves. The stealth black is understated, but aggressive looking, and matches my matte black R/T striping.Was this review helpful for you?

Recently purchased caliper covers for my 2012 Challenger; I tossed around many options before I decided to buy, but I did get color coded to my Car and with Challenger Script. The only difficulty I had in the installation was removing one tire at a time. The joy here is that my Wife loves them also (easy to buy what your wife loves huh.) If there was an option to post pictures on this review, I would have done so. I have 3 coat Red Pearl with chrome clad wheels, these look awesome!Was this review helpful for you?

The fit, finish, and appearance of this product are outstanding, and the installation was the easiest I have ever done. Hardest part is to remove/install the tires back on the vehicle. It gives the Challenger a much better look than having the original OEM calipers showing.Was this review helpful for you?

I ordered these because I didn't want to paint the calipers on the Challenger. I had done that on a car previously and remembered how the brake dust made them look so dingy after a while. My only hesitation was the price tag. A little steep but decided to order. About a week later, these beautiful aluminum pieces arrived. I jacked up the car in my driveway and was literally done in 30 minutes. It took longer to get the jack and lug wrench out from under the spare than it did to put on these covers. What a transformation. Big brake look that accents the chrome rims. I still think that they could shave around $50 bucks off of the price, but when you see the look on your car after the installation, maybe $199 isn't that bad.Was this review helpful for you?

I ordered these for my 2012 Dodge Challenger SXT with SS/T 20-inch chrome wheels -- my car is red and I thought these would give the wheels a really nice subtle touch without the cost of having the red Brembo brakes put on, or painting my existing calipers. CARiD.com\'s price was the cheapest I found. The items are solid metal and I had them installed by a local mechanic, it took him about 30 mins to remove all four wheels and slide these in (the installation cost me $54). Aside from looking cool, these help reduce brake dust, which will be really helpful in keeping my new chrome wheels clean and shiny (just a little dust will have them looking kinda dull). Would definitely recommend, although they\'re kind of expensive for what they are.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
