2018 Mazda Smoked Hyper vs. Silver?

So my niece is driving a 2018 Mazda3 Touring and I'm replacing a wheel she wiped out. I found the OEM part number no problem on the back of the wheel (part no: 9965337080), but when I search online using the OEM part, there are two color options available with the same part number. One is listed as "Silver Painted" with a designator (ALY97879U20/180269) and one is listed as "Smoked Hyper" with a different designator (ALY97879U79/180269). to me, the wheel looks more like the "painted silver," but honestly I can't tell. My thought was the "Smoked Hyper" was an option or standard upgrade for some trim level. Looking through everything I can find on the 2017/2018 models, I can't find anything saying whether it is package specific, and if so whether it's Touring or Grand Touring.

ANYONE have any ideas here? I'd like to get her car back on the road for her ASAP, and want to avoid ordering the wrong color online. pic of all three is posted below. painted sliver on right, smoked hyper on left, niece's in the center.

Thanks in advance!
