Default Paint Red or Silver?

I really need to repaint my calipers/drums again, my passenger side caliper was replaced two months ago (torn rubber boot=seized piston) I never repainted it red to match the others. Currently it'* red but the replacement caliper was silver. It looked good. Do you think I should go with red or body color?

RED
Don't be a double standard.

Red is a bit flashy for these cars, they're not exactly big brake kids or anything. I had red before, and i'm not repainting them that color. Frankly the paint may have caused my slide pin seizure.

I went black because I didn't want the color to move attention away from my rims. The rust color was.. black doesn't.

My PEM'* are also black and like my calipers and drums.. no one ever sees them.

Silver for sure, she'd look nice and classy red would be too flashy IMO

I think silver would dress it up without making it look like the ricers who who paint their calipers and throw a couple sticks on their spoiler, and think they're Earnhardt

Yeah, I'm doing mine black too, just to take away the rust color, but not draw too much attention, even though I'm getting rid of the Bonne eventually

silver or black, red and yellow are a bit too in-your-face for a bonneville
