Help with lift and Fuel Maverick wheels?

I will be installing either a 4.5 or 6 inch lift in the near future on my 2012 ( I want to run 37"s) and really like the 2 piece Fuel Mavericks with the chrome center. I have seen both 20" and 22" in either 10 and 12 inch widths being used on these trucks but i am unclear on what the offset should be, any suggestions? I am leaning towards a 6 inch kit with the 22x12 wheel but not sure how wide to go with depending wether i go 4.5 or a 6 inch kit (is a 10" a better width option?). I dont want them to stick out too far and look silly but will also likely want to add wheel flares to complete the look of a lifted truck with wider tires.
Also can anyone suggest a vendor for these wheels?

You need to keep less then 6" of backspacing. So for a 10" wide wheel between a +12 and 0 offset is perfect IMO. Some guys like them sticking out a little farther, and go with an offset between -12 and -24.

The smaller the offset (More negative) the further the wheels stick out.

Stock is +40 with an 8" wide wheel.

I would not suggest a 12" wide wheel.

So looking at this http://www.mhtwheels.com/cms_pdf/D26...20Maverick.pdf shows me all the 22X12's have -44 and 4.75 bs so these would stick out a bit too much but would work. The 22x10's are -13 with 5.00 bs so these would be a better fit in the wheel wells?

IMO those are both pretty extreme offsets. The 22x10 with -13 will fit alot better then the 22x12.

Basically the inside of the rim face is in the same place for both wheels (1/4" different). But since the 12" wide are 2" wider, they will be sticking out 2" more.

Thanks for the help, maybe i will continue to search for a diffrent 22X10 wheel that has less offset than these Fuel Mavericks as they dont offer any choice in offset in either sizes.

If your going to run the 22x10 -13 offset you'll need a 6" lift for sure. I know you can custom order offsets in this wheel that are a +8 I do beleive, which is a 5.5 BS or something, you MIGHT be able to get away with a 4.5" lift with this setup.

That's not true. I run a 20x10 with a -25 offset and 37x13.50x20 Toyo MTs with just a 4in lift.

Truck looks sharp BlueOx!

Yhea i seen the other thread here with the 4.5" Rough Country and 22x12's so figured they would work. I will likley go 10's though as dont want them sticking out that much, plus i decided to go with a 6 inch lift.
