Arrow Can't decide which rims!!!!!

I need some opinions as to which set of rims to get, I'm going to lower it about 5 inches in the rear and 3 up front, i want to know if these will look right. http://gainesville.craigslist.org/pts/2049802231.html

or these? http://gainesville.craigslist.org/pts/2042045965.html

also should i paint them black or keep them the stock color?
Thanks guys.

Would they look good cleaned up and painted black? Also, do you think they would fit and not rub while i'm turning?

def first set,, and they will probly rub.. little wider than stock wheels, they might hit the brake line mounting bracket on the frame... mine rub, but it only has an 1/8" before bottoming out at steering stop.. so its close. consider mine r 18", and the wheel hits the mounting bracket, on 17"'s tire might rub and it kinda has sharp edges and will ruin a tire quick, keep an eye on it.. and def paint 'em semi gloss black ... and I spend alot of time in the Ocala area

None. But, if you have to choose between those two, go with the first ones.

Thanks guys but I'm gonna wait and save money for a less crappy set and some brand new tires. Would my stock ones look good semi gloss black or what?

Good choice! IMO stock rims will always look stock no matter what you do to them. Some trucks look good with modded stocks but I think lowered trucks look good with some flashy aftermarkets. Only stocks I like on lowered trucks are like the newer cobra wheels and similar.
