Are these C7 Corvette wheels the silver painted or machine faced ones?
 
So C7 wheels options listed so far are silver painted, machine faced, and chrome right?

Which ones are these? My favorite so far.

I don't like the base wheels we saw on the pre-production cars much.

It looks like the "Machine face" optional wheels

You can get black painted rims on a Z51 C7 and they get my check mark.

It's kind of hard to tell on that car since they're all computer genereated pic's and not real pic's of an actual car, but they look 'polished' in a few to me.

The C6 - (RQ1 - option) machine face for base models appears to be the same as the base wheel with the background shaded/blacked out, not a completely different wheel. So we'll have to see if the optional wheel on the C-7 is the same.

I'd like to see the base wheels in gloss black.

this is kinda a dumb question but is there something to the "5" spoke design that GM always puts on Corvettes? not complaining, just happen to notice that every Corvette that I can remember C5 and up comes with a 5 spoke wheel, or a split 5 spoke wheel. The exception would be a C6ZR1 but even that has a "dual split 5 spoke" pattern.

Just an observation. I agree they look like the machine face option.

GM used to have some interesting internal policies governing styling for the sake of tradition. At one point, if it was a Chevy, then it had to have 5-spoke wheels. Since then, GM has come to their senses, but I'm sure that some of that thinking has remained.
