RS rims/ Stock rims

Does anyone know if the RS rims are that much darker than the stock rims

Search for some pics on the site. There are some side-by-side shots in the media section of the site.

It seems to me they are quite a bit darker, if you do a search you should find plenty of pics of both. Hope that helps

See the link below for pictures of the wheels on real cars.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7702

The first picture is polished, the second is midnight silver, and the third is sterling silver. In addition to this I saw the midnight silver wheels in person and took pictures of them. Here are a couple of the pictures.

My impression from comparo pics (somewhere around here) is that they look kind of pewter or titanium, one shade off from bright/shiny. Many of us that thought they were dark have been disappointed. I like the way they appear on the Build Your Own page, but they're brighter than that.

I love the way the midnight silver looks in these pics!

And I hate the way it looks on the site... sooo ugly.

And I think the polished wheels look just a little too bright... so I am sticking with the midnights.
