If you're getting black steelies, nobody will notice since both the tire and wheel are black and the overall height is pretty much the same as the 17" since you're increasing the sidewall height and decreasing the rim diameter.

One other point, getting the winters on their own dedicated wheels makes them easier/cheaper to have changed over in the Fall/Spring over the long-haul.
