Would these rims look right?

I'm looking at some new rims, and ive come across a dilemma .. Whether to get glossy black or matte wheels.. Right now I have chrome on my truck but its slowly being taken off switched to FX4 gear.. I have black glossy diamondplate bed rails, and a matte black toolbox.. Kinda got screwed on the toolbox, but for now its there. I'm thinking about switching it out to a glossy black diamondplate one.

Now these are the rims I'm looking at, Fuel Octane Deep rims, would they look right on my truck with other glossy black parts? Anyone have any experience or pics of these mounted? Im also deciding between the Nitto Trail Grapplers and the Toyo MT's... with it being a 20x12 wheel, I'm pretty sure Im going to have to go with the Toyo's.... any help? Here are pics of my truck currently, before I throw either a 6 or 8in lift.. If I go 8in, then its going to be 38's.. if its a 6, then 37's...

And does anyone know if you can either powdercoat diamondplate rails or powdercoat the rims glossy?

I saw those wheels in chrome and wasn't really a big fan, but I really liek them in black! good choice!

As for the wheels, i'm guessing the matte black is actually a teflon coating much like a lot of the xd series if I'm correct. I think that would look fine. I don't think gloss would look bad either though.

Hrm.. well now I don't know.. Ive seen the chrome ones mounted on a truck and just can't picture them in black for mine... little too blingy.. and I don't think it will look right.. what about a set of these though instead?

Chrome version of Octane's
New set of rims to think about..

Im not a fan of the jesse james wheels, I personally dont think they look very good.

Although, I have only seen them in chrome. The black ones do look better though.
Tony Wildman has them on his truck
Here is a pic, its not very good but its the only one I had
