Hammerite smooth, Halfords caliper paint, Foliatec - all work so just go with the cheapest IMO!

Here's one of mine after 3 coats of halfords own brand red caliper paint.
Best to put a minimum of two coats, and be sure you clean off all the brake dust first with a wire brush (I used an attachment for my drill) & brake cleaner.

Foliatec - they also give mixing advice - you can then get ANY colour / shade that you desire !
