Which Wheels (20's)

Alright, i got some 37's in my back yard that i got for free (hold air and balance with some tread left) for some 20's. I want to see if i can clear them with my Zone 6". I have an Add-A-Leaf and turned my bars up some with my cognito keys. Makes my 315/75/16's look small now and being they are getting pretty worn, now is as good as any time to upgrade to 20's.
I have been looking at alot of wheels lately and its a tough decision for something worth so much. I narrowed it down to three (so far)

American Eagle 016, Black/Machined - 20x10 (-21 Offset, 4.625" Back Spacing)
RBP 96R, Black/Machined - 20x9 (-12 Offset, 4.5" Back Spacing)
Ultra Drifter Wheels, Black/Machined - 20x9 (0 Offset, 5" Back Spacing)

Which of these wheels would work better for my lift and running 37's? Lift is cranked up a little so its probaly like a 7" or 7.5" now i think?
Which wheels are gonna stick out more? Which is gonna suck in more?

I am Currently running 16x8 Moto Metal 951's with a 0 Offset and 4.5" backspacing.

Can post up a pic of the truck with the Moto Metal's on it now. And can get a pic of how much they stick out currently with my set up.

American Eagle 016:


RBP 96R


Ultra Drifter Wheels


I am kinda partial to the Ultra Drifter's myself as they are something different. Altho i havent seen many people (none where i live) with any of these rims yet.

Or if you got any other idea's for me, post up any ideas. Just no straight chrome wheels please.

rbp is ghey, and I think the only 5 spokes that look on these trucks are the oems. I would get the american eagles IF I HAD to chose form these 3. plus they will have the best stance considering they have the best offset IMO.

A little off topic but..I saw your 1/4 time and your mods and wondered why it was so slow! Then I realized that time was stock internals

Looks like the AE's are winning by landslide.
Anyone know how much more these are gonna stick out over my Moto Metal's (0 Offset, 4.5" Back spacing, 16x8)?

Am i gonna have a harder time clearing the 37's with these rims over the RBP's?

Does anyone have these rims? Id like to see some pics of em.
I especially like how these are close to the BMF R.E.P.E.R's.
