Our new performance sport Caliper Covers are contoured like real calipers and they just slide right on, over your stock calipers. If you are tired of looking at your small grey front caliper and the undersized horseshoe shaped rear calipers, look at how nice these brighten up your wheels. See our before and after rear caliper photo.
The facade front covers include bolts, a hydraulic line, and a rubber bleeding cap. They look great and are even easier to install, just slide over and tighten one nut. Please watch our demo install video. Aluminum Caliper Covers are very simple to install, not permanent, and have no warranty compromising risk.
Made specifically to fit over the Tesla Model 3 stock non-performance brake calipers, these Caliper Covers will give your Model 3 a RED Caliper Painted look.
Caliper Covers not only look awesome but they reduce brake dust accumulation in your wheels. These are made lightweight 6061-T6 Aerospace Aluminum that covers the caliper for a perfect fit. They are powder coated in bright red for a long-lasting, beautiful look.
These caliper covers are a great lower cost non-permanent solution to covering up the plain silver calipers on your Model 3. If your leasing, you can leave them on when your lease is over, or just unscrew one nut and remove them.
Optional Vinyl Letters: Want us to customize your calipers for you? We will do it at no charge. From our pull down menu you have to choose "None - Plain Red" or "White/Black Vinyl Letters". If you choose Vinyl Letters we will install them for you, and all you have to do is tell us what you want on them.
Before shipping your order we will install any 3M vinyl letters in black or white on each caliper. The letters are your choice, and while most prefer the letters on the OEM Performance Calipers, many want BREMBO (The Caliper's Manufacture's Name), or a Brembo Logo. Others want their Name or Initials, but it's your choice. All you have to do is Select "Vinyl Letters" from the pull down menu and then just click on "Add an Optional Note" in your shopping cart. If you select "None - Plain Red" you will get 4 plain red calipers with no letters, so please tell us what you want and be sure to select the White/Black Vinyl Letter Option unless you want plain red calipers.
Default Vinyl Letters: If you select white or black vinyl from our pull down menu without giving us your choice of the letters or logo, we will assume you want the default OEM Style. Please don't forget to Add an Optional Note once you place this item in your shopping cart.
Included: You will receive 4 Caliper Covers. You also can add a full set or rubber jack point adapters for only $35 extra. These come in their own carrying case that zips up. Here is a link for details on the set of 4. A set of 4 are great to have if you rotate your own tires.
Installation: If you can remove your wheel and torque your lug nuts to 120 inch pounds, you can do this installation yourself.
Installation Time: Average installation time is about one hour.
Tools required: Safety glasses, floor jack, impact wrench or lug wrench, torque wrench, 3/8" wrench.
Will RPM TESLA’s caliper covers fit with my Model 3 wheels?
Yes, Caliper Covers fit all versions of the Model 3. These custom-fit Caliper Covers have been designed for optimal fitment for both 18" and 19" and 20" TESLA wheels.
What if I have aftermarket wheels?
Caliper Covers are designed for a close fit. If you have aftermarket wheels and would like to determine whether you have enough clearance, measure from the back of the wheel to the front of the caliper. If you have 1/8" (approximately 3mm) of clearance, you have enough space. To test - if you can slide two stacked quarters between the brake caliper and the wheel, you should have enough clearance. If a vehicle has been fitted with aftermarket wheels, it is the customer’s responsibility to verify a 3mm clearance prior to placing the order. Because of the vast variety of aftermarket wheels, it is imperative that this be executed before an order is placed. Caliper Covers require 3mm of clearance between the brake caliper and the inside face of the wheel. If a customer is unsure as to whether the wheel configuration has the necessary clearance, it is recommended that you contact us before you place an order.
Will caliper covers reduce brake dust on my wheels?
Customers report a significant decrease in brake dust after installation of Caliper Covers. See the “Features” tab for more.
When using regenerative braking with my Model 3, will brake dust or heat dissipation still be factor?
You'll still use your brakes. But it's true that you'll use your brakes less in a Model 3 than someone driving a gas-powered internal combustion engine vehicle due to regenerative braking.
What about painting my calipers?
You can try painting your calipers, but be prepared for a lot of work. First, you'll need to get the whole car up on jack stands. Then you'll have to decide whether to paint them in place or disassemble them. Either way, everything will have to be completely clean or the paint won't stick. If you're painting the calipers in place, you'll need to use a brush, but there will be areas that will be hard to get to. Caliper Covers provide a more convenient and cleaner approach.
Will the red coating on my caliper covers hold up to the heat?
Caliper Covers are powder coated for high heat, durability and toughness.
Are caliper covers removable for brake service?
Yes. Reverse installation, remove, and replace after service.
Does the red used on Caliper Covers perfectly match the Tesla red body paint?
No, the red used for Caliper Covers is called “Red Baron.” It is a fairly standard color used by most of the popular big brake companies. Nearly all customers with red cars are perfectly fine with this color. Since the brakes are not against the body of the vehicle, the red being slightly different is not very blatant / obvious. And, according to our customers, it blends in nicely and looks very sharp. However, this is subjective.
Where can I find a professional installer?
In every area, there are competent wheel and tire service centers / shops that have specialty in aftermarket product installation, these installers tend to be the most adept at installs like Caliper Covers. However, it is imperative that you ask your installer follow the instructions provided.
