As far as E46 M3 go, it's pretty much Shadow Chrome (18s) and Polished (19s).

These are for OEM wheels. Aftermarket is not included.

I believe hypersilver is the name aftermarket companies use for their equivalent color. Real Chrome Shadow is an expensive process that uses a lead-based paint. The best other companies do is mimic the color. They don't actually reproduce it.
