MGP President, Mike Barland began development of the product after purchasing aftermarket wheels for his vehicle. The wheels were larger in diameter and opened up the viewing area behind the wheel. The aftermarket wheel design was aesthetically pleasing but exposed one of the most unappealing components on the vehicle - the Brake Caliper.
Aftermarket brake kits were expensive and the vehicle did not need the extra braking power. The options on the market were plastic covers held on with silicon or aluminum covers held on with double back tape. Painting the Caliper was a messy, dirty, all day event yielding unsatisfactory results in aesthetics. An obvious need was identified.
The challenge was to develop a quality form fitting Caliper Cover to meet factory wheel clearances and fasten securely for easy installation. This endeavor took a time frame of 4 years. After testing multiple methods, testing confirmed a clip and fastener system was best to hold the Caliper Cover. The stainless steel fastening system is patent pending and the design is flexible across many applications.
Now, customers can choose a quality product with engineering excellence straight from the U.S.A., adding style and color to the car as well as function by substantially reducing brake dust.
MGP Caliper Covers are manufactured in the USA with 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum. They are TIG welded for strength, powder-coated for durability, and include a patented stainless steel fastening system. No adhesive, tape, or caliper modifications are required. Typical installation time is one hour from start to finish.
Each configuration is engineered for the specific vehicle application to ensure proper clearance and a secure fit. When you order a set of MGP Caliper Covers you will receive parts that were specifically designed for your vehicle. The included stainless steel fastening system is also specific to your brake caliper.
