Default Opinion on these wheels

Hey, I'd like to know what you all think of these wheels: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CRR-3975812/ I like the fact that they are cheap and they don't look too bad, I have a very limited budget. What are your opinions? Should I look at getting the 15x8's or the 15x10's? I realize they don't come with center caps, but they are only $13 each, so that's not a problem. Says that beadlock isn't included, so is that a big deal? I know what beadlock is, I just don't know how big of a deal it is compared to wheels that do and don't have it. I am not 100% on whether or not I'll get these yet, really just depends on your guys' feedback. I am thinking of still using my wheels I have now, which I bought last fall (Goodyear Wrangler Radial which are all-seasons). Also if you have any other suggestions on fairly inexpensive wheels, that's fine too.
Thanks guys n gals, lookin' forward to your feedback.

Oh yeah, another pic of my truck:

If you don't plan on buying at least a 12.5" wide tire, then get 8" wide rims. 10" is too big for anything under a 12.5

yea for sure go with the 15x8 and i would just use your stock caps and paint them black. that way it would look kinda factory as well..and those wheels are pretty dope!
heres a list of some and i really like the pro comp "steel" rock crawlers http://www.4wheelparts.com/prodDetai...No=PCW52-5865F they also make these in flat black and gloss and with a chrome cap as well.

I think if I do get them, I'd order the center caps as well, but still paint my ford center caps. I like the look of these chrome center caps.
I like the way the Cragar's have the circles, better than that kind of half circles those Rock Crawler's have.
Thanks for the input.

your truck is going to handle differently, and you might see a small decrease in your gas mileage, going from alum wheels to steel.
