THESE FIT ALL MODEL S & X with larger longer rear calipers. Please be sure to look at your REAR calipers before ordering. The year of your Model S or X does not matter. These fit the larger Brembo rear calipers only. See photo examples before ordering. Brembo are longer that the Mando types.
Tired of looking at the dull gray small undersized Tesla calipers on your Model S or X, look at how nice these brighten up your wheels. Caliper Covers not only look awesome but they reduce brake dust accumulation in your wheels. These are made from lightweight 6061-T6 Aerospace Aluminum and made and tested to specifically fit over Tesla Model S, X & 3 stock brake calipers.
Simple to install, not permanent and does not affect the warranty. They are engraved on the front, they are powder coated solid red.
If you are located near us in Southern California we also offer painted Calipers for $549 in a ceramic paint. These Caliper Covers are a lower cost non-permanent solution to covering up the silver calipers.
Installation: Our video is on the INSTALLATION TAB. Watch it to see more detail and to see how easy these are to install.
Many suggest professional installation, but we believe if you can remove the wheel and if you can torque your lug nuts to 110 pounds, you can do this installation yourself.
To install the covers you simply put on 2 clips on the upper and lower end of the caliper and then you put a nut over a screw. Watch the 2 installation videos to learn more but it is so simple you will not believe it.
Installation time: The average installation time is about one hour.
Tools required: Safety glasses, floor jack, impact wrench or lug wrench, torque wrench, 3/8" wrench.
Note: there is no painting, taping, or gluing, or any brake caliper modifications involved in the installation.
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.
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.
Can I install caliper covers myself?
Professional installation is normally required but if you can remove your wheels and re-torque them you can should be able to handle this installation. Instructions will be provided with the product for the installer and instructions are also available in digital format within our "Instructions" tab (and we've also included an instructional video as reference in our "Videos" tab). Note: professional installation of Caliper Covers should take 45 minutes - 2 hours depending on the installer.
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.
How long does it take to ship caliper covers?
We target your shipment from same day with expedited orders or 5-14 days for normal non-expedited.
