Are those all Plasti-Dip colors? They've really expanded their colors.

Sorry, I jokes...

I like the Red and Black the best of those options. My personal choice would be silver.

I'm in the same boat as you. I was thinking about either Silver or Satin White Pearl, only because you hardly ever see white brakes.

BUT ON TOPIC:
Black. Voted.

^^ There's a reason for that, brake dust.

White would look sweet if you kept up on the cleaning.

What color are they now? Brake calipers take a lot of abuse so I would leave them whatever color they came else you'll be repainting annually (I know you too well).

Besides, you put any more colors on that thing and its going to start looking like a parade float in the Rose Bowl parade.

That's basically what I alluded to, but he's changing the car to WRB eventually, so this is his Planning phase. I really like the suggestion of silver, so I'm going to ponder a bit longer.

Brembo Gran Turismo 332x32 Front Brake Kit. The guy stripped the paint off to powder coat them but decided to sell them first.

The blue looks good IMO. I like how its self referential under the goldies. All the other colors asise from silver/gold look like they are doing too much with the bright blue and classic gold.

if it's going on your wagon, red or black I like body color used on calipers. That being said, I have a silver car with black calipers, silver stickers.

I'd return them to the stock Brembo Gold personally.

WRB would seem too "different" to me, as most BBKs run Red, Yellow or Gold in color. (or silver/Black)
