Default 2012 Paint scheme and wheels

Today I ordered a 2012 Laramie Quad, deep cheery mono, tinted windows all around except windshield. I went with solid color as opposed to the light gold bottom strip because Im thinking (just thinking) about making the bottom third of the truck brilliant black with a gold pint strip to separate the colors. I would have the black paint start above the wheel flares as go straight back horizontally encircling the body, including tailgate. Has anyone seen this paint combination or something that resembles it? Photos appreciated. I would also like to swap out the stock 20 5 spoke chrome wheels, tires included that come on the Laramie to a Mopar 20 5 split spoke wheel with Michelin rubber. (wife works for Michelin) Im just trying to avoid the large cash outlay to purchase the new wheels and rubber while hoping/ waiting to sell the standard wheel offering. Anyone know of a slick way to make such a swap without the extra expense??

Dodge offers Michelin tires or the cheap Wranglers, maybe you can talk them into some kind of deal
you buy the Michelin's through your source
you buy the MOPAR rims that you want

you trade those that are coming on the Ram for some upgrade, like the best radio they have like the 730N or some other upgrade that you want or need

by the way, if you have not yet signed the financial papers
have your wife check to see if Michelin is a CHRYSLER AFFILIATE, if they are & if Chrysler is still running the program, you can save a ton of money on the purchase price, as low as 1% below Factory Invoice
