The polished aluminum are the same as the painted silver, just polished instead of painted.

The non-RS comes with silver painted aluminum wheels; the RS comes with midnight silver paint - the wheels are the same, just painted a different color.

The polished wheels are an upgrade... they are the same wheels, but polished smooth rather than painted. And they do look nice when clean.
