Caliper Covers

Custom Painted, Custom Logos

So, you’ve mounted a set of large diameter wheels and low profile tires. Those new rims and skins sure look great don’t they…except for the rusty brake calipers that are now on full display. Unfortunately, many large, thin spoke rims have a lot of open area that can reveal ugly mechanical parts that were best left hidden. So what can you do? You have 3 options: install new performance brake calipers, paint your existing calipers, or install caliper covers.

MPG Caliper Covers

The first option is the most expensive, and frankly overkill if all you want is something that looks better. We’d love to sell you a set of performance calipers and we carry the best with names like Brembo, Baer, and Wilwood. But with these calipers, what you’re paying for is their ability to make cars stop better. The fact that they also look great is just a byproduct of good design. So let’s take a look at the next alternative, painting.

Featured Products

When done properly, painting calipers is very time consuming. First they have to be completely clean or the paint is not going to stick. And even if you do everything right, there is still a good chance that the paint will peel in the future. But the big knock against painting is that it can’t do anything about the shape of the calipers. The design of some calipers is just not that great looking, and putting them in color won’t change that.

Custom Caliper Covers

Which brings us to the best option: caliper covers. Although paint is cheaper, when you factor in what your time is worth, caliper covers are the least expensive alternative. The covers we offer are laser cut from 6061-T6 aluminum, with a powder coated finish. They’re available in multiple colors and with custom logos. With caliper covers you get a durable product with a finish that will never peel, in a shape that will look great on any brake caliper.

Brake Caliper Covers

Caliper covers are easy to install, won’t interfere with brake operation, and are easy to remove when brake service is necessary. They also reduce brake dust, so those nice custom wheels will stay cleaner. And although you may not think attaching covers will make calipers cooler, they will actually reduce caliper temperatures by 30°-50°F. The covers act as a heat sink, drawing heat out of the calipers, which prolongs the life of brake system components.


While you’re installing caliper covers, why not install a set of wheel bands? These protective bands attach to the perimeter of the wheels to protect them from curb damage. They come in colors that complement caliper covers, giving your wheels a custom effect like no other. A plastic track attaches to the wheel, with a tough replaceable plastic insert that will take the brunt of a scrape instead of your rim, saving you replacement or refurbishing costs.

Guides & Articles
Some calipers, particularly some of the basic single or 2 piston models, just aren’t that great looking. Painting them will pretty them up, but won’t change their basic design. But painting means a lot of time and effort for possibly questionable results. You can always count on caliper covers to look great. For the average popular late model car they’re...
