6 Spokes on a Ranger

So, I've been looking for new wheels and tires for the Sport lately, and I've grown to really like these things. Here's my choice at the moment.

http://www.5zigenusa.com/english/pro...racer/GN+.html

Anyway, I wanted to get some opinions.

Right now, I'm looking at getting 17x9.5 with +12mm offset. Anyway, just figured I'd ask and see if anyone had opinions. Think they will look too ricer-ish?

Color I'm looking at will be Hyper Black. I really wanted the HMC color when I saw it, but they want an extra $180 per wheel for it, and don't offer it on a wheel with a decent offset for me.

I have seen some on a newer Taco and they looked great. Not sure about a Ranger though.

I think like a gunmetal would look really sweet with the yellow. Get someone to do a PS for you

I could probably do that myself. If I'm not feeling lazy.

It is hard for me to picture I like the wheels a lot but I dont know how they would look on your truck. Do a PS and maybe that will help paint a clearer picture for me

It is. My 07. He just didn't realize I had a different truck. Here's a good photo if anyone wants to attempt it before I do.

I love the wheels but I don't think they should go on a truck.

So... this really makes me think otherwise. It just looks off somehow.

Personally, I'm just trying to find something that I think will look good, is fairly light weight, and isn't a 5-Spoke. Everyone and their mother rocks 5 spokes, and while they look good, I just want something different.
