Default do you think blue break calipers would look good on a red 95 civic hatch?

i was thinking red also but everyone has it that color and my break drums would probably just stay black.. thanks for reading

It would look better if you paint them red like the car

Blue will look too Tinkertoy... black will look sharp. Silver would be good too but would be a chore to keep clean.

blue on a red civic? mexicans do that only. lol!! go with red, black, or even gold polished. gold polished will make ur car stand out and look like u put time into it and look JDM style. also when u paint em, take ur drums off and sand em with 80 grit sand paper or if u can afford it, have em sandblasted! prime em, wet sand em with 100 grit wet sandpaper, wash em off with water and dry em. then u can paint em and clear coat. clear coating is ur chose. but make sure u use heat resist spray paint.

I own a red 95 Civic EG8 4dr and I have both the calipers and the drums painted blue.















In my honest opinion I think that the contrast in colors looks good and since many people don't have them painted that way it would give your car a unique look. I have JDM headlights + side makers and red tow hooks on my car so it has a stock yet sporty JDM look.































Hope this helps!
