Default Chrome or Hyper Silver Rims? What is the difference?

Hey everyone, I need some advice. I'm going to get a new set of rims for my car and I don't really know that much about the maintenance and what is really appropriate as far as aesthetics go.

What is the difference between chrome and hyper silver? My car is a daily driver car so does chrome get destroyed from that? I have a 2007 mustang, which will look better on my car? is chrome too much?

Any advice you have is much appreciated. Thanks!

Here is my car:

I'm going with chrome on mine, but they will only be on 6 months of the year.
I think with your black stripes black chrome would look great.

Black wheels would go well with your stripes.

The Chrome will last a long time. Care for them the same way you care for your car. I have chrome and love them.

Zporta has the right idea! Black chrome would look incredible on your car. Otherwise, chrome.

Chrome when cared for will last a long time and make sure it was applied by a reputable wheel manufacturer (known for chroming rims and other parts etc)
