Aluminum Polish vs. Satin Carbon wheels?

I notice that on the 2015 California edition of the Summit the wheels are listed as Satin Carbon and on the regular Summit they are listed as Aluminum Polished.

Anyone know what the difference is? Are the satin ones more muted? Are they actually carbon? Anyone actually seen the satin ones? Did you like them more than the Aluminum polished?

Thanks!

they are the same style as the polished rims, but are painted in a matte silver. they are not the dark satin carbon finish like on the SRT. I have a pic on my phone I will post.

Thanks ! So is that your rig I assume? Do you like the satin finish better that the "chrommier" look?

That's not mine, but I ordered one just like it.
