It will just look ****ing retarded with black and orange wheels on a grey mazda hatch/wagon. If you have a GT3 or something maybe you can pull off orange wheels. If you have a stock mazda, you will look retarded and be mocked. Now if you leave them silver it will be a tasteful and classy mod.

I did. I knew some people wouldn't like it. I'm not even sure if I like my original plan.

Orange has been the only one I have found to like. Just as an example.

That looks ok. The orange calipers are a little meh, but the wheels look ok.

Any painted calipers on cars without massive brakes just kinda say "Check out my tiny brakes!" to me.

When my brakes start to go I'm getting the Speed3 stuff and putting it on there. My brakes are more than plenty to stop it right now but just switching the the MS3 brakes is a huge improvement. 60-0 takes like less than 90 feet. That is just what was written on one of the stickied threads on a mazda3 forum. What the front brakes look like now.

Bronze would look good on the grey. Orange could work too, but then you're dipping into the ricer-chic. But what do I know, I just drive a **** brown car with gold wheels on it

Is there a need to go any further with this thread? The decision is made by that right there. In fact, I have already ordered those rims

adequate brakes and brakes you want to show off by painting orange are not the same. You can do what ever you want, I'm just trying to prevent you from driving a car everyone laughs at.

It seems like you have read the first 5 or so words of all my post and then judge from that. I guess you missed the part where I said I was swapping to larger brakes. Sorry I'm not going big *** brake kit but the new ones will be more than plenty to "show off".

No, I read. Don't like my opinion, fine. But the point stands. If the caliper does not come painted, and you paint it, it will generally look bad. My brakes are 15'' drilled rotors with some decent sized calipers and they still look bad painted. The calipers that come painted are designed to look pretty. The ones that do not are designed to just disappear behind the wheel. Look at porsche/ferrari/brembo/stop tech/AP brakes. Then look at your brakes. They don't look the same...
