I'v tightened my passenger rear caliper and I still have a loud rattle from it.
The pads are in great shape and the anti-rattle spring that must be taken out/put back in is there.
I've inspected the entire mounting braket and re-tightened the caliper but it actually got worse.
Though about replacing the pads anyway to see if a new pair would sit better but don't know if that'd help.

Before you do anything to the brakes, first determine if this noise is actually your center cap on your rim. (I have the same car)
Sometimes the cap will not tighten correctly and will rattle constantly as you drive.

If this isn't the issue, then you could possibly have defective brake pads and/or your anti-rattle clips could be bent/rusted/broken. (Just because they're in place doesn't mean they're working)
