Default Calipers: What color should I go?

It will soon be getting warm enough around here to paint my calipers. I originally wanted to go red, but I thought yellow might look good also. It seems the norm around here to go red b/c it says pontiac, but the only thing red on my car is the front emblem and I kinda wanted to be different.

Here are some half a$$ed pics tell me what you think.

I was thinking of silver.
Do a silver version so I can see what they would look like.

if there are only two choices i would say Red, but if its just a matter of opinion, then Black would look hot.

<Edit> I guess I shoulda read all the posts.......
