American Racing or KMC, black or Teflon?

I'm going to put my stock tires on these wheels for the time being because I'm not getting a lift kit and larger tires until I wear these out. So what are your opinions on these two wheels:
American Racing Teflon, or the XD795?

Anyone think those nice wheels will look lame on my stock truck until I lift it? (I hope not, because I really want to do this. haha)

Not that I care tooo much what anyone else thinks, but I don't wnat to be driving down the road like a doorknob...

American Racing will much easier to clean with the Teflon, something to keep in mind if you off-road your truck at all
