OBS Wheels?

Im am trying to find some wheels for my truck but it seems like there isnt much out there. I really like the moto metal 957's (machined) but im being told that the negative offset will cause rubbing on the OBS unless it is lifted
3" or more? I'm ordering a 4 inch lift with the wheels, so I guess the question is: has anybody run any moto metals or the like on their OBS?

Those look sick. Your truck in general is bad *** man. How have the wheels held up? Pitting or anything like that?

Zero pitting whatsoever. The only blemishes they had were self inflicted.....brakekleen takes the clear off pretty fast LOL, but now I have stripped them
Here is one that I just did, 4 years old and never once kept them out of the weather and ran them every winter. This was just stripped of the clear that I messed up and polished

I am running American Racing 325/60R18 with an aggressive negative offset. I have a 1.5 add a leaf on the front, and the wheels will rub occasionally when reversing and turning at the same time.

Thats what I was hoping for. So I should be able to run about any wheel I want with a 4 inch lift. Thanks for the help

Could you get me a pic of the wheels? Or even just a google image of the model would be cool. What do you mean lifting an OBS "correctly"? Is it easy to overlook something?
