They might. I'm hoping its a smooth texture like my wrap so it's easy to clean. Those look nice! I want to upgrade the rotors and pads, but I'm going to wait till I need new brakes.

Sh*t, I'd guess most stuff done to these cars is 'for looks'...with no real functional benefit. So what? Whatever floats yer' boat...I got $500 worth of Bassanis that serve no purpose other than to make me smile from the sound...no performance benefit.
I am not trying to burst anyone's bubble, I'm just saying, if it was me, I would only try and show off / draw attention to my brakes if they are an upgraded set up, be it from the factory or otherwise. I think the stock brakes are a huge compromise.

Who shows off brakes, this is for a smoother sleeker look. Even with big brake kit I still would probably get rims that try not to show off the brakes.

It's just funny when I see a built up mustang with every mod known to man except the puny 13.8 and the even tinier rears. You have all that power and a set of brakes that will fade after 3 hard braking events.

If the guy was racing, then it would matter. He just wants to cover the ugly OEM calipers. I painted mine black for that very reason. Now they kinda hide behind my black bullit wheels, while the OEM gray was really noticeable. I think the covers for the OP will look great.

2011 GT Premium 6M convertible. Sterling Gray w/401A package, charcoal seats w/grabber blue stripe. Security package. Roush front fascia, splitter and rear wing. Black bullit wheels with 18x9 front, 18x10 rear. FRPP suspension. FRPP x-pipe. Roush axle-back exhaust w/square tips. JLT carbon fiber CAI with custom tune. Carbon fiber engine cover & coil pack covers.

If you decide on caliper covers let me know. The person my fiancé ordered these from didn't charge her for custom engraving.

Which will revert back to my post awhile back, how many actually track their car to the point they actually usesthe brakes? 4k for a visual mod is beyond rediculous

Eventually I will do something other than the drag strip and I'll upgrade my brakes. Ill start with rotors and pads though, so these covers will get a lot of use. When I do need bigger brakes, I'll take these off and sell them.
