Hey guys, I am starting to pick out some new wheels for my car. I was wondering what the difference between black and hyper black is, and if anyone has pics. Thanks!

Hyper Black is more like a black chrome, without the bling is the best way to describe.



These are 18in Motegi DP12 Hyper Black.

Yeah its weird even the guy that sold me the rims and tires said I could have easily put 19s on it. They are 18s though wrapped in 215/40 zr18 Nitto Neogens. I even have mazaspeed springs on the car.

I think it is just the angle of the pic. If the pic was from the side without any wheel tread showing I think they would look more like 18's.

Interesting placement of the MazdaSpeed badge...

Nice wheel choice, nice ride! :drive:

I agree with Business, for the bigger effect dont' get rims with a lip. I always felt that 18s with a lip looks like 17s without a lip. And remember there is Gloss and Flat Black.

Example of Glossy Black:



Example of Flat Black:

Nothing wrong with having a Mazdaspeed badge if you have genuine Mazdaspeed parts.

It seems like all manufacturers have a different hyperblack. I have seen some that are a touch darker than straight silver, some that look no different than gunmetal, and some that are closer to black which is what I would expect hyperblack to be. I say if you are interested in that color you really need to see what it looks like from the mfg of the wheel you are interested in.
