Which, Mike, illustrates one of the problems associated with painting calipers - which colour will work best?
Lighter cars respond well to brighter colours, so red sits well with a white or light silver car - it pops more in the visual negative space of the wheel wells. The same thing happens with darker coloured cars, except it tends to overwhelm everything else, and pulls the eye to the bright spot to the visual detriment of the rest of the car. So, dark coloured calipers visually integrate better on dark cars.
Having said all that, the most important consideration is what makes you happy.
(Apologies. I've been a graphic designer for the last 25 years, and I go into lecture mode whenever anyone starts talking colour!)
