HYPERSILVER / GHOST CHROME
Hypersilver is a very complex paint process that uses a translucent metallic outer paint laid over a colored undercoat to give the wheels a deep inner glow. Used effectively, it can attract attention to the wheels without the flash of chrome, and without detracting from the beauty of the car.
Hypersilver is a multistage process; first a primer powder coat is applied, then the first coat of paint is laid down in either silver or black. A translucent paint is then applied on top of the base coat. Finally, the wheel is sealed with a clear powder coat for protection and durability. When the translucent silver overlayer is painted on a silver base, it gives a particularly bright effect, while the overlay paint on a black undercoat gives a more smoked look.
Industry heads spent years dealing with the multiple barriers to reproducing hypersilver due to the paint not being able to be imported into the U.S. because of the amount of lead. However, with extensive research it is now possible to refinish hypersilver wheels to a restoration-quality match.
This however means that the cost of refinishing hypersilver wheels is substantially more than a standard painted or machined wheel. The multistage process is quite expensive and the paint alone is three times the cost of standard paints. You obviously never want to damage your wheels, you especially don't want to damage hypersilver wheels. On wheels with a black underlayer, any damage can become uniquely visible (and quite annoying) when picked out by a nice black outline. You care for hypersilver wheels just as for any other clearcoated wheel; with a non-acidic wheel cleaner.
