Should I paint my wheels black/ 30 inch tires?

Thinking about doing this... but not too sure how it is going to look since I do not have big tires. Would this look okay with small tires?

It's your baby. Do what you want to it. If you are just unsure that you will like it, plasti-dip the wheels rather than paint them. From what I understand, it's quite easy to remove of you don't like the look, no harm done. If you do, move on to a more permanent solution.

Do not perform any mod for looks alone, mod for function. I promise you if you plan your mods to improve function, you will have a Jeep that "looks" the way you want.

I'd look at tire rack or another website for general looks to see if You would like the way they look! Then if like them would consider gettting them powder coated, they'll last longer and look better. But then this is what I think.

I'm with Shaun on the Plasti-Dip suggestion. That way if you hate the look, you just peel it off. And if you dig it and decide that you want to have permanent black wheels, you can get em powdercoated, and only be out about $20 or so for the Plasti-Dip experiment.

You thought Da Vinci was a pioneer? Check out these threads from Jeep peeps who stand at the vanguard of the Plasti-Dip revolution:
