Default Red Caliper Covers VS Redline Paint

I am looking to buy a set of Caliper covers, and I want to do red. I am not sure if the Redline paint will match the factory red from MGP. Has anyone seen or installed red covers on a redline. I don't really want to get into repainting them or custom ordering for that kind of money. Thanks

I purchased the cheapest ones possible in satin then scuffed, painted, decaled, and cleared them using caliper high heat ceramic paint myself and saved a boat load of cash.

They are about $200 seems like a ton of money for what you get.
They are $279.00 painted in your D's color

Mine should be in any time...didn't bother with the color match I figured the red will look good enough. Plus when you paint them you will have to do it again....I know because I ordered a set for my Magnum because they need repainted. Over time the heat of the brakes will break down even the heat resistant paint. It will crack and then flake off. And Clifford R/T your ride is looking sweet! Don't see many other red R/T's out there.

I think I paid 179.00 at Carid.com plus 8 dollars for the decals to be made and then two cans of caliper paint.

Thanks guys, Hemibuck post up some pics when you get them installed. I am looking forward to seeing them on a Redline. Your rims look tough on your ride.

Got them on today but it was too late to snap a pic. I will get one tomorrow. They look good. Performance red has always been a good look for calipers IMO.

Yup I paid the same, $179, that is for standard color and MGP graphic. any other colors outside of Red/Black/Silver, you pay $ more I think and more if changing letters. Carid is cheaper than going to calipercovers.com
The sure make a whole lot of difference though, totally worth the investment. I added a couple of red R/T logos to the bottom left of each front wheel by the mudguard too for some extra pop

On all the sites it does not call out a 2013. I am assuming the 12 will fit just fine. Am I correct in this assumption? Thanks

Also for those of you like me, who doesnt tinker with his truck to much or even own a jackstand, I installed mine without taking wheels off, no problem

Not really put on from inside, then went in from outside with brackets/ and screws, lil tricky but not bad, but can only verify on the repo's of course
