Hyper colors are paints that use a metallic paint over a black undercoat to produce a deep, shiny finish. Most hyper colors are light silver, dark silver and various shades of grey. Hyper colors are popular with many foreign vehicles. Since the process is more involved and the paint is more expensive, hyper refinishing is more costly that traditional painted wheels. As an alternative, you can paint your hyper color wheels with standard paints to save on refinishing costs.
Painted wheels are the most common finishes on cars today. The painting process includes prepping the wheel, adding primer, painting and applying a clear coat, which seals the finish against corrosion.
We use a powder coated clear coat, which is baked on at high temperatures. This method is far superior to the liquid applied clear coats. We apply paints based on OEM specifications for all types of wheels.
We Fix Rims Houston can match the factory color of most wheels depending upon the year model of the vehicle. We also offer powder coating – a durable and high performance painting technique. You can choose from a wide variety of colors while achieving a strong resistance to chemicals, abrasion and corrosion. A very popular request lately has been painting your wheels the same color as your car, a service which we are proud to say we offer!
Painted Brake Calipers
Vehicles with open-spoke alloy wheels have their brakes visible, which means owners have the opportunity to show off their brake calipers with different colors. Italian sports cars such as Ferraris and Lamborghinis have painted calipers, and you might desire a similar sporty look. Painting the calipers will give your car an expensive, custom look. Paint brake calipers by removing the wheels from the car, and preparing the surface properly so the paint will stick to the calipers and give them a polished look.
