need your opinions folks...

Okay, so Ill be in the market for some bigger tires and while Im at it, figure I might as well throw some new wheels at er. So I got ahold of an aquaintance that works at a 4x4 shop here in town, see what he could do for me. And he found me a great deal, but the wheel is black, and Im just not too sure about black wheels on a dark green truck... what do you think?

Here is the wheel in question. 150 per rim. in total after taxes its around 2100 for new 35's and these

theyre ultra mammoths. 17x8. They are a nice lookin wheel, but I dont know how good it would look on a dark green/beige truck. The tires that come with are procomp mt/s. for around 2100 for the combo

My other option i was looking at was buying a set of slightly used (still have hairs on them) Toyo open country MTs, with a 16 inch hole for 1000, and buying a set of 16 inch rims

I'm pretty sure you can't run a 16" rim due to caliper clearance plus does anyone make a 6x135mm 16" rim?
