SBC/Titanium Chrome-like finish?

Hey guys,

I want to redo my wheels for after winter, and finally have set my eyes on this finish.

Any of you guys know if anyone locally can do a finish like SBC/Titanium Chrome?





doesnt seem to be hyper black, and not exactly black chrome too...


thanks !

Unfortunately there is no one locally at the moment who does the finish you are looking for.

Based on the replies I got and my own research as well, I have found out that its basically impossible to get that finish here.

Does anyone know anywhere that would do a hyperblack finish?
