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.

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.

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.
