need help deciding what wheel to buy

K so im in the market for some new tires/wheel setup but every time i find a wheel i like its backorder for more then 2 months... first it was the american racing thug's, so then i was gonna get the american racing chamber's and thos are backorder... i like the teflon look on the wheels its the look im going for on my truck... i was originally gonna go with 20's but i think 18's on 37" mickey thompson baja radial MTZ tires would be better ( and cheaper) than going with the 20's... so now i need your guys help im looking for a 18" wheel has to be black and has to be at least 9.5" wide... lets see what you guys can come up with....thanks

-Raul

OH FYI ill be selling my wheels tires as soon as i get these new ones... they are 17x8 mojave teflon on 315 bfg KO with about 20-30% tread left

k so far these are my two options.... only because everything i really want is back-ordored for at leats 3+ months... first one is moto metal 951 look at the black ones there those would be it on the right top

Moto Metal

second would be these Helo Maxx 8 Black Machined

Helo Maxx 8 Black Machined
those helo's are nice and remember that i wouldnt have that chrome cener cap because of my hubs...plus my hubs are already painted black.... let me know what you guys think... ill be doing this next month as soon as i have the cash to lift my truck lol
