C6 Callaway flow forged wheel finishes

So I bought a set of four Callaway flow forged wheels on the corvette forum. UPS lost or damaged one (depending upon their story of the day🤬) but either way one of them is in possession of UPS and we will never see it again. It’s a rear wheel or a C6. I see there is one for sale on eBay that says it is hyper black. The wheels that I have have a kind of silver almost powder coat looking finish on them. I am wondering how many different finishes there were on the wheels and if I would happen to have hyper black and could buy the one on eBay to finish my set. Or is hyper black like black chrome?

You can get them repainted or powder coated to match your current wheels. I’d grab that one off of eBay ASAP and get UPS to pay for it. Hyper black is not chrome. It turns a hint of black on the angles in certain light.

Probably good advice. Looks like my only option right now. Problem is UPS is no longer talking to me or the seller. Something funny going on.

Id petition a refund from the seller equal to what it would take to buy the ebay wheel. Its easily documentable. Did he actually insure the shipment? Weird that UPS won't speak with you. Best of luck on this deal. Those are great looking wheels.

Hyper Black is painted, so it'll be easy enough to just have it painted silver to match. Good luck w/ UPS
