Trailblazer SS wheel finishes

I was curious from the factory if the OEM Trailblazer SS wheels came in one finish or were there two? I am seeing a gun metal dark color and a high polished more aluminum finishes and I cant tell if there really are two finishes or if its alot of break dust...Can somebody provide some insight?

So if they are gunmetal then this is something that an aftermarket company did then right? Such as...

So they only made one finish, polished. BUT they made a few in gunmetal?

So there are two finishes.

OEM SS rims only came in one finish...polished. All other finishes are either refinished OEM or aftermarket reproductions.

I ordered the gunmetal ss wheels from ebay. If they are not factory you can't tell, look awesome with black lugs on white vehicle.

I actually just ordered a set of gunmetal SS wheels from Blackburns. According to Alicia, who's in charge of internet sales, the gunmetal was a limited run that they got directly from GM. They're official, GM wheels. She said they had (2) sets left and I bought one of them. She also said that once the last set is gone, they're gone forever. I ordered them on Tuesday and my fiancee called this morning to tell me they're sitting on our front porch. KILLER customer service over at Blackburn's.
