I've only seen a couple trucks with those rims painted black and it looks like cheap plastic IMHO. I vote no, but it's your truck so if you like it go for it.

Couple examples:

you could another set of ranger rims from a junk yard or eBay, i know around here these rims go for 75 dollars a piece around where i live.
But you would have to get new tires though

i painted my winter steel wheels black , but them went back to the "stock" silver color, the daytona "D" wheels look cool, but paintd black factory rims just look like demo-derby material to me. and having a all-black truck, it just needs another color. if it were green, id paint them yellow, for that "john-deere" look. lol just kidding, but i have seen a orange 1/2 ton with painted orange wheels and "T" mudflaps.
