Default E-pinions wanted: Calipers...red or black?

I can't decide and just wanted some opinions....I bought Geoff's jdm front 4 pots and trying to decide whether to paint them red to match my rears, or to paint both the jdms and my rears a deep black. the jdms are paintless, kinda greyish currently. my car is a white 06 wagon if that matters.

if you have a white car, i'd definitely go black.

however, if you had a black, blue, or red car, i'd say go with red calipers.

I say black. Contrasting colors just keep it clean looking and non-ghetto.
