Does This Look Stupid?

I haven't had a lot of sleep, and I've been staring at these brake caliper "clip ons" I guess since I'll be going with larger wheels and you'll see them more.

I've been staring too long, I need an intervention. Do these look good, okay, AutoZone? Maybe 1 to 10 with 10 being completely unidentifiable from the real thing (lol).

Red, black, or silver available

All we know is...he's called the Stig

Stupid, Bling, Rice.

Not to even mention that a huge amount of cooling comes from convection (air blowing over calipers).
Putting a cover over them is counter productive to convective cooling.
Might as well put some thermal blankets over them....

Yes. There is nothing positive about this.

spend $500 more and you can get real brakes to show off (front at least) with extra performance.

Ok, heads back in the game, (almost). No cheap ass covers. No $500 for front brake upgrades, as much as I'd love to.

Next stupid idea. Paint the calipers? Look okay, or just leave the hell alone?

I make up 112% of what I say.

No! Well, TBH I've considered it.

Admitting having a problem is the first step. Fix your rear end and leave it bone stock for at least a year.

Uh.... You know about my rear...? Oh... Well, I might not be able to leave it bone stock now since it needs new wheels. Oh! And I installed a new stereo/bluetooth/Android Auto/DVD/Nav thing the day before I decided to play ballerina in the road. So, not 'bone' stock anymore...

Although, FNstupid would be quite an upgrade from FNcrazy, believe me.

ok, maybe more than $500, but come on don't tell me you don't like this?

http://www.rr-racing.com/RR-Racing-F...gt86fbk005.htm

they're really affordable for what they are. $200 more on top of that can get you even better brakes.
