Are my stock rims aluminum?

Greetings.
I just bought a 2004 Type S. I believe the rims to be stock. They are five spoked, and they have the Acura insignia over the hub. Regardless, they are dirty!
Armor All Extreme Wheel & Tire Cleaner says it can be used on all clear-coated rims, but NOT on uncoated aluminum rims.
1. Are my rims aluminum? (Owner's manual does not say. They look aluminum to me.)
2 Are these stock rims coated aluminum?
Thank you, brethren of the Type-S.

Are these aluminum?

Here is a photo of my rim. Does anyone know if these are aluminum? Anyone know if this is coated aluminum or uncoated?
Thanks

Their aluminum.

You can sand them down and paint them and they don't look too bad when the car is lowered soo

Are they coated aluminum?

Thanks Apollos!
Any idea if they are coated or uncoated aluminum from the factory?
