Thanks for the links Jim I think I may need some winter wheels next time around. These all seasons in the snow were a little precarious at best LOL

What is the difference between hyper-silver and hyper-black? The descriptions are the same:

"The finishing process begins with a black powder coat foundation. This is followed by a translucent silver which allows the black foundation to become visible through the silver, producing the color hyper black. The final stage consists of two layers of clear coat."

It was a typo. He meant to say Hyper Silver.

^^^
The first description was of a hyper black wheel. The second description was of a hyper silver wheel. Maybe the hyper silver has more silver sprayed on it so less of the black shows through?

I think the Hyper Black is darker than the Hyper Silver. I should email them.

EDIT: They do not offer the wheels in Hyper Silver. Only Hyper Black
