Wheel question

Are there any differences in the 17" wheels that come on the Wrangler sport and the Rubicon ?

I think the sport has painted aluminum and the Rubi has brushed aluminum finish.

Do you know what the stock Rubi wheel offset is? Im looking at two different aftermarket rims to change over to, with about a 20 difference in offset. I posted in another thread asking which offset is best to get to make my front end have an easier life. HELP!
