Default Need some advice on whether or not to paint these rims

So I bought my truck and really want new tires and wheels, but the previous owner had just put brand new tires on so I've got a little while to wait and I figured painting the rims would satisfy for now. What do you think, black stock rims on a gold truck? Would it look good, any pictures of somebody that has already done this would be great. thanks.

why not just get same size rim so you can still use the tires?

Go flat black if you do.

I want to get a different size rim eventually. but that's like 50,000 miles away. So I don't really want to waste my money on that, but I don't mind spending like $50 on painting them different to job for a couple years. Plus I don't have a whole lot of money right now for something like that.

I would definitely do flat black. Just wondering if it would look good against the gold paint.
