Midnight Silver Wheels

I know there are several posts containing pictures of the Midnight Silver Wheels. I have looked at every picture of the MS wheels that I can find. However I am still confused to what they look like. Every picture looks different to me and none of them look like the picture posted from a brochure with the individual tires. I ordered the RS package just for the wheels, and am still at a loss. Could some one lead me in the right direction? (I am seen the IOM pictures and they look different from the other posts that indicate MS). Could some take pics of the MS wheels on a Chevy Colorado Sport or the GMC Canyon SLE-3 3SC with the MS wheels and post them? Are the IOM pictures the best pictures of what the MS wheels look like?

One last thing, how hard would it me to have the TPM work with aftermarket wheels?

Sorry for the list of questions, but Im about to beat my head in to the wall over this.

Thank you for help,

Although I haven't actually seen the MS wheels, they appear in the pictures to look exactly like the Rays Engineering forged wheels on my '06 Grand Touring 350Z. They are painted, but not a true silver/metalic(sparkly) color, but a grayish silver (what I would call near gunmetal gray) and not very metalic so it's hard to tell they're painted. IMO they have a masculine look, or simply like clearcoated metal, still bright and shiney, but not that typical silver sparkly metalic color on so many stock wheels (lower trims of the 350Z included). One good thing is they won't grab so much attention away from the body of the car like an even brighter, shinier (Gaudy???) wheel.
I'm somewhat torn between the MS and polished aluminum, although I'm leaning toward the polished. Ultimately of course it comes down to personal taste.

First and second Camaro have the Midnight Silver wheels. Looks okay on the Red Jewel, but I'm getting a Silver Camaro and don't like them too much with the Silver. I will be changing to polished once available.
