Default Rim finish type

Hi guys I may have a very newbie question. Please bear with me. The first one is commonly seen white painting finish. Can someone tell me what is the finish type on the second picture? How should I describe this to the retailers. Really want to have them running on my car. Thanks.



This is the commonly seen finish.



This is the finish I'm looking for, glossy and shining.

Machined face / diamond cut finish. I personally prefer the first, normal type, as they are more resistant to corrosion and is more durable overall. The machined wheels from the manufacturer usually have a disclaimer stating that not to be used in winter climate where road salt is applied. My previous car has machined wheels and the spider web like corrosion makes it look really ugly.
