Difference in JK Wrangler spoke rims and JK Rubicon rims?

I am looking at buying some OEM rims off a 07-09JK and see rims off JK standard models and Rubicon models. Is there a difference in the rims? From the pictures they look like the same design (5 spoke 17”) but appears the Rubicon’s are polished where the other are just Grey paint? Is this correct?
Thanks

X models and Rubicon models do have the same wheels, but the X has silver painted while the Rubicon has machine faced.

Rob99: It can't be a scam. There's pictures of Asian people in business suits pointing at charts and graphs.

Thanks,
Just purchased a set of JK Rubicon wheel and tire. Ordered my Spidertrax wheel adaptors for my TJ to run the JK wheels. Hope it works out as well I plan it to. Little concerned about the JK's rims backspacing and the spacers, but my pencil whipping show's it to be about what the factory TJ rims are.
