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.
