What color rims should I get?

Hey this is my 05 F250 CC FX4 I currently am running 315/70/17's on factory 17" rims and I can not get a smooth ride at all. The people at the tire shop say it is because the factory rims is only 7.5" wide. Thay say I need a 17X9" rim. They say that wil help with the balancing and ride. SO anyways I am looking at some rims but I dont know what color I should go with (chrome, polished or black) I really want black rims but I dont know if they will look good on my truck. So plase any help or input is appreciated.
