Stock Wheels vs. Eagle Alloy Series 50

I'm a new Jeep owner and recently purchased a 2013 Wrangler Sport with an upgrade package that included P255/75R17 Goodyear tries and Jeep alloy 17" wheels.

Finances do not allow me to lift the Jeep or add larger tires at this time, but I am thinking of purchasing some black Eagle alloy Series 50 wheel to have the stock tires installed on.

I'm not seeing much of an opportunity to get much for the stock wheels, as it seems that everyone who has these wheels pulls them and the tires off for an upgrade, and the market for the wheels seems to be flooded.

The reason I am thinking about getting the Eagle alloys is 100% for aesthetics, as the Jeep is Rock Lobster in color and I think the black wheels will make the vehicle look pretty sharp, albeit with less than optimum tires.

What do experienced Jeep owners think? Would it be better to just run the Jeep as is with the stock wheels and tires rather than just sticking Eagle alloys on the same tires? (I can't afford both tires and wheels right now).

Will I be losing by selling my stock wheels for a low price to off-set the purchase of the Eagle alloys? What would you do?
