MGP Caliper Covers FAQs
WHAT ARE CALIPER COVERS MADE OF?
MGP Caliper Covers are made with 6061-T6 Aerospace Grade Aluminum. The bolts and logos are engraved, so they never scratch off. They include stainless steel clips that fasten directly to your caliper brackets making it quick and easy to install.
CAN I GET THE COVERS WITHOUT THE BOLT DESIGN?
The bolts are engraved as part of the design and not actual bolts. Yes, you can order the caliper covers without the bolt design. Once you select your vehicle in the year / make / model selector, hit shop now and then click on the Customize button. In our customizer, you have the option to remove the bolt design. Please note this will be a custom order and cannot be exchanged or returned since they are made to order. We encourage you to verify your fitment with customer service prior to placing your order.
CAN I GET THE COVERS WITHOUT AN ENGRAVING?
Yes, you can place an order without an engraving (we call them “plain jane covers”) in our customizer. Once you select your vehicle in the year / make / model selector, hit shop now and then click on the Customize button. Please note this will be a custom order and cannot be exchanged or returned since they are made to order. We encourage you to verify your fitment with customer service prior to placing your order.
ARE CUSTOM ENGRAVINGS AVAILABLE?
Absolutely! A huge part of our business is customizing our caliper covers to match any style. Once you have selected your vehicle in the year / make / model selector, hit shop now and then click on the Customize button. You can choose from the engravings we have available, add your own text or upload your own logo or artwork. We recommend uploading a .png file with a transparent background for best results. Please note this will be a custom order and cannot be exchanged or returned since they are made to order. We encourage you to verify your fitment with customer service prior to placing your order.
CAN I ORDER CALIPER COVERS TO MATCH MY VEHICLE COLOR?
Yes, we can match any factory OEM automotive color if you provide the VIN number, paint name and color code. Once you have selected your vehicle in the year / make / model selector, hit shop now and then click on the Customize button. Click on the Custom Color tab under Select Finish Color and enter your VIN. Choose your vehicle color from the list of colors that appear below your VIN. If you would like to choose a custom automotive color, please go to www.ppgpaintit.com. We will need the paint name and the manufacturer code. Please note this will be a custom order and cannot be exchanged or returned since they are made to order. We encourage you to verify your fitment with customer service prior to placing your order.
DOES THE PAINT HOLD UP AGAINST BRAKE HEAT?
We are very confident in our product and guarantee for 3 years that the finish will withstand any heat and corrosion that may occur.
ARE THE CALIPER COVERS REMOVABLE FOR BRAKE SERVICE?
Yes. As easily as our products are to install, they are equally simple to remove when it comes time for brake service or maintenance.
DO THE CALIPER COVERS TRAP IN BRAKE HEAT?
No, we designed the Caliper Covers to dissipate brake heat. Our specially engineered covers divert heat away from your brakes and out through the top of your factory calipers. We hold our production standards to an OEM level to ensure safety and durability. Check out this video on our MGP Caliper Covers Heat Test.
DO THE CALIPER COVERS REDUCE BRAKE DUST?
Results will vary depending on the brake pads used, but our customers have reported that they noticed less brake dust after installing our Caliper Covers.
WILL THE CALIPER COVERS FIT MY WHEELS?
We specifically designed our Caliper Covers to work with OEM wheels. While most aftermarket wheels do provide additional clearance, we highly recommend that you confirm spacing before placing your order. Our Caliper Covers only require 3mm of clearance (about two stacked quarters) between your stock brake calipers and factory wheels.
MGP provides the minimum wheel size in the fitment table located at the bottom of every product page. Please verify if your wheels meet or exceeds the minimum wheel requirement.
ARE THEY DIFFICULT TO INSTALL?
No, we provide stainless-steel clips which make installation very simple. With the basic tools, installing caliper covers will take about 1 hour. Check out our installation video and guide.
WILL INSTALLING CALIPER COVERS VOID THE MANUFACTURER’S FACTORY WARRANTY?
No, installing caliper covers will not void your manufacturer’s factory warranty. We work directly with the manufacturers on the development of the caliper covers to ensure safety and durability. MGP Caliper Covers can be removed just as easy as it is to install.
