      Are the stock wheels "Silver" or "Hyper Silver"? I think they're Silver but want to check my belief...

      Just did a little hunting and it appears that these are Hyper Silver from the factory.

      Thanks Tony...

      I looked all over the place and didn't find anything. May I ask, where did you find the info?

      Thanks
      Don

      Been using Wurth Silver wheel paint for years, they are they match the factory wheel paint perfectly.

      I've got a cracked wheel so I was looking at referbed wheels. There are 2 colors avalable silver or hyper silver. The hyper silver is $50 more....

      What Paint Company did you use to Paint the wheels? I used Wurth silver paint, but one of them didn't work properly. A little on the fence of using them again, especially being $21.00 a can.

      Many people enjoy eating apples and oranges, but in the end they are still… just apples and oranges. The R32 is passion fruit. . Live Long and Prosper.
