Dumb newb wheel and tire question

Sooooo I have a 2005 2.7 5lug did the "black box mod" now debating on wheels and tires. I'm Pretty set on black pro comp 15x8 steels and general grabber 30x9.5r15. I guess my quistion is that pro comp also has the same thing in alloy wheels was wondering what the losses and gains might be. Thanks

On the 2nd gen 2.7 5lug in the front wheel wells is a black box bolted on behind the plastic liner. It restricts being able to put a 30x9.5 tire I believe with the box mounted you can run up to 235x75r15. So it's just to run bigger tires. In order to remove the black box I just took a razor blade and cut around the liner and unbolted it.
