With regards to the cropping, in general it's advisable to avoid cutting individual parts of an aircraft. That means not cutting the gear in half (even if it's not the main subject of the photo), not cutting windows or doors, engines, stuff like that. That is a general rule, and I think you will find examples of accepted shots that do not follow it, but in that case there has to be a reason.
On your shot, I would prefer to see the complete front bogie of the main landing gear. I don't think it will create that much of dead space on the left, if anything it will leave a bit more air for the Transaero logo.
Can't comment about the (lack of) blurryness right now, as I'm not on my home PC.

I agree with Solro's opinion that the wheels are so dark that it doesn't matter motive-wise. They don't catch one's eye. I think it is a nice ending with the lettering and the door included. but this is my subjective opinion.
In my opinion that is a solid reason to crop the gear. I would rather see a cropped gear than an engine appearing out of nowhere
