should i buy these wheels and tires?

these are some 37x13.50 nitto muds on 20 inch incubus wheels on my stock height 95. i had to put my crappy small tires on my cousins 05 duramax to get it into my garage to do head gaskets so his tires had to go on my truck. after getting em on i kinda like em. only problem i have with em is they rub my springs at full lock. i wanted to paint the truck white, but seeing these on there im not shure what color now. what do ya'all think of the wheel/tire combo and what color should i paint it should i choose to buy em?

either repaint it black and chrome rocker panels to accent the chrome in the wheels or just paint it a dark red

Tan might look good. ive seen a few newer trucks that are tan with chrome and black wheels, they looked pretty good
