Question Need some help. Going to get my dad some new wheels on his truck

Okay as most everyone knows he's in the hospital with leukemia. Anyway right now we dont know how soon he will be out of the hospital. May be as soon as a couple of weeks or he may be going down to UAB for a couple of months. It's up in the air right now till they do the next bone marrow sample. Anyway my dad loves his truck and I want to do something special for him. Now that I actually have a job making decent money I want to buy some new wheels for his truck. He already knows i'm going to and he didn't want any bigger then what he has. So I have to stick with 17's, but i'm not sure what to get. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Nothing flashy though. I want the new wheels to be very clean looking. One of the reasons I'm doing this is because I feel like my dad got screwed when he bought the truck. It's a lariat edition and to me I think ford copped out on the wheels big time. Anyway let me hear some suggestions.

I am a big fan of these:
Eagle Alloy Wheels Series 185


or, if black is out, the chrome style:
Eagle Alloy Wheels Series 187
