sounds like you'll be cleaning the brake dust off the calipers on a daily basis :p

I know about the brake cust.

But i figure people paint there calipers other light colors. Like orange or yellow. They would show dust almost as much as white.

I figure i will be the guinea pig on this one.

Im going to buy the paint tonight.

Wish me luck. :D

I put a set of white wheels/Hoosiers on my RS4 Avant clone. The car was Nogaro Blau Perleffekt and the white wheels looked great!
I'll try to find a photo..

JEff, I can't wait to see the results. I'm sure it's going to look good but you just have to clean it more often. With your new garage, I don't think that would be a problem. :)

Just saw my cousins Lexus the other day. A long time ago she painted the calipers. I thought it was silver, but now it looked like it was pale yellow. Either way, now it looked absolutely terrible. They were filthy, and looked like a lot of the paint had came off. I don't think she takes much care of the car now that it is paid for and well she's been out of the country the last few months and just left it with her Mom. Hopefully a spray can of black finds it's way towards them sooner or later.

Seems like it would be a massive amount of maintenance with white.
