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.
