Icon4 Want new rims, any opinions?

see i want to go up to a 16 or 17in rim and i found a set of rims i really like but their 17's and the price is definitely different between the tires for the 16in rims and 17's but who thinks i should just call it a day and say to heck with it and order these http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/He...PHE83578012300

i love these but wish they came in 16's
if anyone knows of any rims that look next to identical to these in 16's please feel free to share with me!!

im gonna run Mickey Thompson MTZ's with whatever rim i buy that settles one issue....

Those rims are okay But like Shane said they look busy

If I stare at them long enough they start to spin.

Mildly similar to the Helo's you posted, but the 16's have huge backspacing...
