Default Black cars..Black wheels...red calipers?

My calipers don't stick out like I really imagined they would. Anybody have a black car with black wheels and red calipers? Here's how mine look. Thinking about going to red... Do you think I will be taking about from my black theme?

Sorry. Only close ups I have of them.

I think that looks very clean as is. Anybody that knows anything will notice that and how clean it is, and if they don't know anything, then who cares. Personally, I don't think they should "stick out". Less is more.

Why not just paint them a gun metal for a subtle change?

I would do the red. It can use a hint of color.
