    Caliper Covers

    Took the lazy way out and installed caliper covers instead of masking and painting. Found a company here in Chula Vista, CA that'll make caliper covers for the CT in various colors, powder coated and can even engrave them with your favorite graphic. They have a nice looking Ultrasonic Blue for Lexus. Opted for black as I have enough blue as it is on the car.

    Here's how it comes:



    Before:



    After:



    Here's how it looks in the wheel, front and back:



    Final look: Darkens everything nicely behind the wheel, giving the wheels more contrast.

    Very interesting. I wonder if they warp if they get hot.

    Just wanted something uncommon. They're Racing Power TH227 Wheels. 17x7.5, 40 offset. The blue stripe is part of the wheel. Found that style in an assortment of manufacturers all the way up to 10 spoked. Wanted to keep it to 7 so it wouldn't be too hard to clean. As far as blue stripe, thought it kinda tied in the Lexus and Hybrid badges and logo's all over the car. I really wanted 18x8 which is also offered, but wanted to use up the stock tires first. I'l probably get the 18x8 when I eventually have to replace the tires.

    The caliper covers are from www.calipercovers.com. The basic covers are about $200. But you can google an authorized dealer for around $175/shipped, or eBay them for around $180/shipped. But, if you want custom, you need to get it from the calipercovers web site.

    Yeah it does. That's why I filled in the MGP logo. I had originally gotten the Lexus caliper logo's on eBay and was gonna apply them to the calipers once I painted them. So I stuck em on the caliper covers instead. Those guys should just charge one fee for whatever color you want or give the option to sell them primered and unfinished. Their fee's - I don't get that.
