Rockstar 2 versus Fuel Hostage..Help!

I'm stuck. I can't decide between these 2 wheels. I have a 2012 Red F350 SRW.
I have unpainted/black fender flares on the truck.

The sizes are:
Rockstar 2: 20x9 with -12 offset
Hostage: 20x9 with +1 offset

So that means the rock star will stick out just under a half inch more than the Hostage.
I plan on running 35x12.5's just haven't decided exactly which tire yet.
Probably the Nitto or Toyo.

Please let me know your opinions on these 2 wheels

I like the lip of the Hostage but I like the over all beefiness of the Rockstar 2.
I like the little hints of raw aluminum in the Hostage as it ties in the shiny parts of the truck.
Bt then I also like the over all aggressiveness ad all black the Rockstar offers.
****, I'm torn.

IMO, the fuels are a nicer rim and the rock stars are way to played out. I would choose the fuels.

2005 F250 King Ranch, CCSB, FX4, 4.5 inch rough country lift, Edge Evolution tuner, studded, nitto terra grapplers 35s, custom exhaust, intake, hids. SOLD.

Looking for my next powerstroke.

even then rockstar 2's? I knew the original ones were played out. But I have to admit, this is my first upgrade to the truck. I spend all my money on the race car all the time lol. So, I'm not too "up to date" on the truck trends.

Gonna be honest with you, I didn't even know they made a 2. To me a rockstar is a rockstar.

2005 F250 King Ranch, CCSB, FX4, 4.5 inch rough country lift, Edge Evolution tuner, studded, nitto terra grapplers 35s, custom exhaust, intake, hids. SOLD.

I like the new rockstar 2. They are not played out yet. I like the hostage too but the hostage is played out around me. Everybody and there mom has them. I was going to get them for my truck but I got the fuel octane since everybody had the hostage. As far as tires, go with toyo mt. Nitto tires suck.

I vote rockstar 2, there not played out I have hardly seen anyone running them yet. Though personally I love the rockstar original and I'd run those in 22x12 if I found a set cheap. Yes the 1/2 offset will be worth it on the rockstar too. If I ran rockstar 2s I would not run the spatulas - they'd go in trash. I like the look without.
