Steel Rim Advice

So, I cant afford any fancy rims for my 5 lug, I am however buying some new tires (235/70/15). I picked up an almost new set of black camry Steel rims that are in great shape for a great price. Should I paint my stock rims black or use the camry rims?

My truck is the same color so that's a pretty good reference. I think those look way better then the stock wheels.

Im not going to bother switching the TPMS sensors, I have winter tires mounted on the stock rims that I want to continue to use. I can put up with the little light.

I'm working on this project right now. I have 3 spare rims so far. I'm just wondering if the TPMS will fit in the black spare rims. The little tire light will bug the hell out of me.
