Standard v Midnight Silver v Polished Wheels?

Do we have pictures of each of the different wheel finishes available for the SS and SS/RS packages?

I've seen the pictures of the yellow RS in Indy and the black RS in Texas; were those vehicles running the correct Midnight Silver wheels?

I'd like to see how dark the Midnight Silver wheels will be before I put in my order on the 13th!

TIA

Paul...

I'm curious about the same thing. In one of the pics I seen the midnight silver almost looked cyber gray. But maybe that was photoshopped or something.

I think that this was stated as the Midnight Silver based on speculation, not sure if it is or if it was confirmed. I could be wrong so don't quote me lol

My SS/SC has "smoked"/gun metal grey SS rims that look just like that. I love them more than I like chrome, they always look good, even when they are a little dirty, because you can barely tell the difference. I know if I do end up getting a Camaro, I'm getting the midnight silver rims...

That car probably has 300,000 miles on it though, black just looks sooo damn good when it's clean!

LOL! I wasthinking about this finish on the wheels just yesterday; If they're dark enough I may just skip powder coating them black

Lol No problem 02bluess, i think if someone got the black to be that smooth as the one from texas, they would have such a beautiful car, would just be a high maintenance colour though, IOM for me, i want to see how those rims would look in chrome, im getting polished then getting the face painted black by my girlfriends uncle. By the way, i plan on blacking out the tailight trim, looks so badass!

Polishing rims with Midnight Silver Finish...

What would you recommend when it comes to shining the polished aluminum wheels with the midnight silver finish? I've heard that aluminum polish is not good because of the coating...

Here is a couple shots of mine with Polished wheels ... You don't need to use any wax or polish on the wheels. Just wash them with soap and water, dry and maybe use a little detail spray for water spots ...

So what should we do about resurrected threads from the last decade?

Maybe threads with no activity for 12 months should be automatically closed.

I love how people complain about others not using the search feature then complain when some one does and necroposts.

so the midnight silver finish acts as a protective agent essentially? So what you're saying is there is no reason to polish them at all because of the finish?

I've seen oem 20"s in midnight silver, polished, and a gunmetal grey. The broucher only shows midnight silver and polished oem 20"s so that gunmetal grey must just be custom painted.

Your right, midnight silver always looks dirty compared to the polished wheels.
My polished wheels looked like midnight silver after just a few miles. I now have GM chrome plated wheels- They always pop as brake dust doesn't stick to the chrome.
