I was able to remove my MGP caliper covers and install my new CCI caliper covers on Saturday. I took the opportunity while I had each of my SRT wheels off to give them a good cleaning too. Before getting to the pictures let me provide my thoughts on the pros and cons of each type of caliper cover. And before I forget, what do you guys think of the yellow calipers with my Octane Red and gloss black wheels? I'm quite pleased with the look.

MGP caliper covers
Pros: Very well constructed, the ability to customize them pretty much any way you like, nice powdercoat finish and the brackets mount to the caliper very securely.
Cons: Really the only con I have is that the flat surface really doesn't look like a performance brake caliper, they are pretty plain and basic. They certainly cover up the OEM calipers and make them look better, but they are not three dimensional.

CCI caliper covers
Pros: Look three dimensional from the side, have the appearance of a performance brake caliper, attach easily to the caliper using included magnets, customizable and are well constructed out of aluminum.
Cons: Not made from as heavy gauge material as the MGP calipers, but that is not necessarily a bad thing since being flexible makes them easier to install, attach using magnets rather than mounting to a bracket which attaches to the caliper and are painted rather than powdercoated.

One other thing about the CCI caliper covers. The rear covers only came with one magnet, while the fronts came with two. I ended up adding two smaller magnets to the rear covers to more firmly attach them in place. Probably not everyone would feel the need to do this, but I wanted to make sure they didn't move from where I set them. I didn't feel like I needed to do that to the front since the front comes with two decent size magnets. I spoke with Ronnie as CCI about the number of magnets on the rear covers and he plans to look into that. He welcomes customer feedback. Now to the pictures.

After driving around for a couple of days with the CCI caliper covers I have had no issues with any noises or movement of the caliper covers. And they look really good! There is really no comparison. The CCI caliper covers look much more like real high performance calipers than the MGP caliper covers do.

I still have the yellow CCI caliper covers on the D. They definitely turn more heads. The black MGP caliper covers blended in with my black wheels so they were less noticeable.

oh okay cool. Thanks for the reply..I was wondering if you can give me your opinion about something. I actually have the same exact Durango but my is a 2015 with red interior.. I was wondering should I put tints on the front windows or should I just leave it as it is to show out the red interior..
And one more thing, I have beats sound stereo system and I don’t really like how they sound. Do you know anything that sound better I can upgrade to? Thanks

You are welcome! I like the red interior. I have the upgraded leather seats, but mine are black. Personally I like tinted front windows. I try to match the rear windows with the front window tint. Mine are 25%. I'm not much of a sound system expert so I can't really help you there. Mine is stock. LOL!

It looks really good. I ran into some trouble with mine. The front ones are actually touching the rim. Did you have to add a wheel spacer?

Thanks! No, I didn't have to add a spacer, but I have SRT wheels that are 20 x 10 so I have mover space between the calipers and the wheels. I never tried the MGP or CCI caliper covers with my OEM wheels.

Wow thanks, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for your response.

Mine clear the Stock R/T 20" rims. However the CCI covers are 'bendable' so maybe you need to do a little adjustment on them. There isn't a lot of clearance by any means but it should clear.

I tried to fit it the best I could but it would rub either way. I saw they mentioned wheel spacers may be a solution. Are the metal plates on your covers as well at the circle magnet?

Totally stock with the magnets. Perhaps Ronnie made a mistake and yours aren't for a Durango?
Oh wow, yeah you have way more clearance! Not sure what the issue is with mine. I'm looking for wheel spacers now. Thank you for your input and pics!

The CCI caliper covers are designed to fit the OEM wheels. I would contact Ronnie about them if they don't fit properly before going with spacers. Make sure you peel the backing off the magnets too in order to expose the adhesive. That might make some difference, but it shouldn't be much.
