What is hyperblack?
What is hyperblack with respect to rims? Sometimes it looks a lot like chrome; other times it looks silver. Then there's also HyperSilver, Titanium Silver, Chromium Black. I like 5-6 spoke rims in chrome, but would like the lighter weight and cost of the "hyper" colors.

This pic is an ALT Racing AT252 in hyperblack. It looks chrome to me. But, I've seen others that just look silver.

This is hyperblack thumbsup

That rim you posted looks chrome to me, maybe the website entered the wrong picture.

In this picture you can see the metalic in the hyperblack, which that's what makes it look chrome. When the rim is spinning it looks like almost black, but when stopped it looks like a metalic black.

Yeah, that's what I thought. I looks kinda like a gunmetal with metal flake for the shine. It's not chrome though. I think the photo above is wrong; or the lighting is messed up.

Nice rims, I like that style thumbsup

hyperblack is basically a mix of chrome and gunmetal. my old rims were hyper black. i loved them. imo its better than gunmetal
