Wheels and lift for Salsa Red Pearl

Hello everyone,
I had to trade off my 03 4Runner V8 due to a rusty frame and numerous other parts that needed replaced. I did keep my TRD 17" matte gray wheels in anticipation of acquiring a Silver, Dark Gray, Black, or White 4 runner. But I found a good deal on a high mileage 2011 in Salsa Red Pearl.

My initial thought was to get the Bronze TRD 17" wheels, but I found a pic online of the same color and gray wheels, and I kind of liked it. So here is a pic of my 4Runner with my wheels sitting in front. What do you all think?

I really wanted to run the old 16" TRD FJ wheels in silver (I had the Anthracite on a Taco years ago, liked that look). But I read that 16" will not fit over the brake calipers.

I'm also researching front lift to get more level. I like the ride quality it has now. What is everyone's recommendations? Lift block, 5100's, 6112's?

I like the look. You have some silver and chrome accents to pick up with the wheels.
