Default Picking between these two sets, need opinions and help please

Hey guys! I need your help, I am trying to pick a good rim and tire combo. My budget is around $1000. Here are my two picks so far.

16 inch Helo HE791 gloss black rims
245/75/16 General Grabber A2 tires.

17 inch MB Gunner matte black rims
255/65/17 Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10

http://www.treadepot.com/tire/05684090000.html

http://www.treadepot.com/wheel/HE7916860300.html (They only show up as chrome in pic.. but I would get the gloss black version)

and

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger Edge 4X4 at stock height. I really like the 17 inch rim/tire combo but my question is would it fit ok at stock height?? Would there be any complications?

Both are right at about $1000, if anyone else has any tire/rim suggestions at that price I would appreciate it but I am mainly looking to see what you guys think of these two combos.

Thanks
