Lightbulb Nitro Caliper Covers

Quote:

I then added the red caliper covers by MGP.



I swapped out my 20" Chrome Clad "pimp" wheels for the Mopar Premium Painted (Black) Cast Aluminum Wheels, the ones that came standard on the 2011 Detonator an Shock. I like them because they have no lip. But, with out the lip, they are balanced with stick on paste weights, which I do not like!

After seeing these Nitro MGP Red Caliper Covers posted by dhh3 I had to have a set too! Ordered today from CarID (one of several Supporting Vendors of this Site) and will post pictures when installed with the stock factory R/T 20" wheels. While they may not be as outstanding as on the Mopar wheels of dhh3 I am looking forward to another modification on my Nitro!

Just as an FYI, they are very easy to install. There are 2 metal clips that just slip onto the caliper - the ones for the front calipers are different than the ones for the back calipers. Here are some pictures that I took - one set has the bolt on the clip, the other set has the bolt on the cover. It's been so long, that I can't remember which is which. There has to be about a business card thickness between the clip and the rotor. One of my rotors must have been slightly out of round because I heard a slight squeak for about 2 weeks! I could hear it when I put the windows down - it sounded like it was coming from the passenger side.

Rick, those look great. I did not think that so much of the cover would be visible with the chrome clad wheels. Nice job, and good contrast with your white body color. Did you have any issues with fitment? My squeak went away after about 2 weeks! And, I still get a lot of compliments. I found some "SRT6" logos on ebay. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.........

I too was surprised that they look as good and visible on these wheels. Thanks to your post another add-on to my already modified one-of-a-kind Nitro!

Rick - This is the nice part - having a one-of-a kind vehicle, and getting nods of approval wherever I go. The Nitro was a great base vehicle to start this adventure. I'll keep looking, for us(!), and see what I can come up with!
