    I think most people paint the drums black to tidy them up. Calipers have been painted all sorts of colours, red, black, yellow and blue.

    My drums are black and my front calipers are red.

    drums must go black

    END OF

    Front go whatever colour u want but i think black all round is a subtle yet effective change

    I would do fronts silver and drums black. If your doing fronts dont forget the edge of the disk always rusts - silver tidy's it up. Black Hammerite looks good on hubs and rear drums and stays clean with a quick hose off.

    Hmm, matt black wasn't one I thought of either! Have seen some in matt silver which is my current favourite.
