JK 17'' Rubicon Wheels

Are the 17" wheels that come on the Rubicon the same as the ones that come on the X models?

The Sport ("X") comes stock with 16" wheels, which can be upgraded to 17" wheels. The 17" wheels are the same structurally as what comes on the Rubi, though some (all?) years were a slightly different finish than the Rubi wheels. My recollection is that you can see this right now on Jeep's website for the 2011s, which lists the different wheels available with each model and includes photos.

Aren't they painted, rather than machined?
