Need help choosing wheels

I'm about to pull the trigger on a icon 4.5'' hanger lift and plan on running 35's. Problem is I can't decide on whether to go with 16x10 or 18x9 wheels. I like the looks of both, just can't make up my mind. What do you guys think?

Looks like 18's will probably be the call, since I can't find any 16's in black I like that are not discontinued or the wrong backspace.

Maybe some of you guys can post up some picks that have 35's on 18's as a visual aid? I have been trudging thru months of threads for pics, but figure a few more can't hurt.

here's a picture for you for an idea. i would not go with anything smaller than an 18". that's just my personal opinion. this is my buddies truck with a 4" pro-comp lift and 35x12.5 r 18's i finally tinted it last week while he was out of town and cleaned it up some

I trimmed just a small amount off the edges of the plastic air dam under the front bumper to keep it from rubbing, and on the rear it just barely rubs the plastic fenderliner if I have the wheels cranked all the way while backing out of a driveway. I pulled the fenderliner back an inch or two so it doesn't rub at all anymore!
