Help me decide

So heres what I'm thinking. I'm going to add the extra inch spacer that you can get from Icon, and then here are my wheel options.

#1: 20x10 Chrome BMF Novakanes w/ 35" toyo mts (If BMFs become available soon like I keep hearing)

#2: 22x9.5 Chrome KMC Ambushs with 37" toyo mts (pretty sure they should fit)

#3: 20x10 Chrome Mazzi Hulks with 35" toyo mts

#4: 20x10 Chrome Jesse James Lawless 8s w/35" toyo mts

Right now I'm leaning towards just going with the Lawless 8s if I can fit them, which I'm pretty sure I can. But I think with 3.75 inchs of lift in the front and having a 5-6" block in the rear, 35s might look kind of small. Give me your opinions.

Ok, well I have toyo mts on my stock rims, and I love them so I'm going to stick with the toyos and 37s with 22s would look the same as 35s with 20s, just bigger.

I've got a set of 20" BMF Novakanes. I'm not very happy with them. I've had these wheels for almost 3 months now and I still don't have a set of center caps that fit them. (I've been told that the caps don't fit the pre 05 trucks but they do fit the 05+ trucks). Regardless, they've still not fixed the problem. Also, they're already starting to pit Needless to say, I'll be getting a new set soon. If they pit like the ones I have now, I'll be getting something other than BMF wheels Just my

Do you run them in the winter? I don't plan on running mine in the winter, and I'm curious if thats part of your problem with pitting.

I put them on in February. They salted the roads one day, then, it rained 2 days later. I drove it the day it rained. I went out 2 days after I drove it and froze my azz off cleaning them. I could understand them pitting if I rode on them all winter in the salt and never cleaned them or if they were an inexpensive wheel, but for what they are, I'm not impressed to say the least.....

Hmmm...I'm really leaning towards the Lawless 8s, I like them just as much as the BMFs and I don't want to wait for BMFs forever and then have problems with them.
