Need some wheel ideas!

I'm taking one of my old shop trucks (long bed, regular cab '99 F350) and I'm going to make it a shortbed. It's 2wd so I'll be lowering it, painting it flat black and making it somewhat of a decent driver.

I'm looking for wheel ideas. Something decent but not too fancy. No need for polished or chrome, I'll probably powder coat them black to match the truck. Actually, I'm powder coating many of the panels on the truck as I own a powder coating company. The only thing that'll be painted will be the cab.

Let me see some pics of different wheels on lowered 2wd trucks, or shoot me some ideas of what yall think will look good.

Thanks in advance!

thanks. I didnt do the conversion but the guy who built it said it was fairly easy. Only hard thing is finding the bed for it and getting the driveshaft cut to length. It had the bench seat in it but I found a set on craigslist. They are the 40/20/40 set in grey cloth but Im wanting to do leather and real buckets or maybe see if I can modify some lightning seats to fit maybe. last pic is a 01 that the same guy built. His truck took 2nd at Autorama a few years back.
