Help Me Choose Wheels

I have narrowed it down to two wheels, which are KMC XD Hoss 795 16x8 4.5bs Black or Eagle Alloy 101 Polished 16x8 3.75bs. I don't want to here, just buy 15in. wheels. I don't want to get those. If I got the Eagle Alloys I would powder coat them silver to make them easier to clean. I never thought I would like black wheels, but I think they look good. I just need some opinions. Sorry for the bad photochop. The top wheels and tires are the ones rideabikenick (I think that is his name) has on his truck and the bottom I just changed the wheels.

I'm going to go with neither of them, but that's only because neither of those are my kind of style. If I must choose though, the chrome ones.

black on black looks good.. if you had a tad more chrome then maybe the chrome might look better, but I have to say, black for sure!

i like the black but i would go with the "D" spoke steel rims in black. the photoshop eagle alloys look cool with the 8 lugs on a ranger though. my favorite rims were discontinued years ago. remember the mickey thompson challengers? dont know why they didnt last. it was like a more modern version of the alumminum slots from way back.
