Fuel Hostage Wheels

I am thinking about buying a set of Fuel Hostage wheels. Has anybody had any negative experience's with them? I was told the rim may not hold up to the weight of the truck real well. Also I have a set of 35x12.50x17 tires with only around 5k miles on them. So I'm gonna go back 17" but what would be the right size and offset of 17" rim i should get?

I had a issue with them. I bought a set and right away I had a pretty bad vibration once I cracked 65-70 mph. After a couple of months I finally started to investigate and found one of the rims was bent. Fuel wasn't gonna honor the warranty, but fortunately I bought them through Alligator and Dave ended up clearing it up. But still took a lot of phone calls.
