Honestly, I like them just the way they are. Clean them up and re-paint them the same way, black in the middle and silver on the rim.

I'd repaint the face black then paint the outer ring silver and put the caps back on and call it a day.

I would say get leave them, but get the black to more of a gloss black and then get your flares painted black too.

Black billet or black street scene style I think would look best as there does not appear to be any chrome on your truck minus the little bit on the wheels.
