What do midnight silver wheels look like?

Newbie here, wants to know what midnight silver looks like? Is it painted, or shiny silver like? This is apparently one of the colors mentioned regarding wheels.

Ordered my Yellr RS moments ago.

It is painted, but I'm not sure exactly what it looks like. My guess based on the name is that it would be a little darker. I'm sure someone else here can clarify.

If you have seen the pictures of the Camaro at the Texas State Fair, those are the painted midnight wheels.

Actually, I'm pretty sure I'd seen a post mentioning that the wheels on the Black RS at the Texas State Fair were painted Sterling Silver...

I ordered a Black SS/RS yesterday, so I'd also like to see the Midnight Silver wheels on a production-ready, Black RS; if it also had the white rally stripes, I'd be set

I really couldn't tell much from the pics on the link above. Wonder if it's possible for one of our GM members to help us out with official shots of both wheels for comparison. (Could help them make the additional $400+ on the polished wheel option).

If this is the painted ones...I am fine with that. They still have that bright silver look. But it would be nice to see a polished shot (as good as this one) to compare with.

Whats wrong with this picture ? It's a concept but someone needs to fix the wheelwell. I hope the black looks close to this finish, the wet look

For people who like dark grey shiny metal colors you may want to consider sending the wheels out and be "black chromed". Black chrome been around for years, here's a pic link.

Do they have a higher shine than the base wheels closer to a High Polished look or are they darker like the Competetion Gray wheels offered on the vette.

Still want verified "Midnight Silver Metallic" pix. Those pix on the black Iver just don't cut it for me. I'd like to see some clean ones like on the black RS. In fact, those wheels look awesome!

I agree if they naturally look like they are covered in brake dust will be cause for me to drop the RS option. Unless I can get a High Polished wheel option.

I don't think anyone should sell the RS package(WRS) Midnight Silver wheels short. They appear, in the pictures, to look exactly like the Rays Engineering forged wheels on my '06 Grand Touring 350Z. They're not a true silver/metalic(sparkly) color, but a grayish silver that looks like, simply, clearcoated metal, still bright and shiney, but not obviously painted like that typical silver sparkly metalic color on so many stock wheels (lower trims of the 350Z included). Now there's nothing wrong with chrome (Cragar SS) wheels or a bright polished aluminum wheel. These will just look more like actual metal, and not grab so much attention away from the body of the car like a brighter, shiney (Gaudy???) wheel. Oh, don't get me started on spinners!!! Ultimately of course it comes down to personal taste.

rodrunner i agree, "flashy" rims take away from the car, which isnt the focal point when were spending 30k+ on a v8 ss

The black chrome idea is quite nice, and i have heard about this a few times...but dammit if im waiting till this time next year to order i aint waiting another day for rims to get "redone"...but then again whats the wait..oh yea, a 5th gen on blocks hehee

i agree with tag, i want a "verified" pic of the midnight that isnt a side shot

This is the yellow RS from the LV show, being the RS it "should" be the Midnight silver, but who knows. Whatever they may be I love the way these look at this angle.

Ctrain24, you are the one! Don't know how you got those pics, but they are excellent. It's noticeable that the 20" Midnight Silver RS package wheels are a metal look, just not as bright or attention getting as the standard or polished. Should help a lot of buyers.

Here is a macro of the midnight silver finish. You can clearly distinguish the wheel finish from the bright silver finish of the caliper.
