Wheel Comparison My diamos vs. Driv Blitz

I current have the 20x10 Diamo 17 karat wheels in chrome. The rims specs are
Size: 20 x 10
Bolt Circle: 8x170
Offset: -12
Backside Setting: 5.03


I just put a down payment(waiting on delivery for full payment) on 20x10 driv blitz in chrome. This rims specs are.
Size: 20x10
Bolt Circle: 8x170mm (6.69)
Offset: -43mm
Back Space: 3.81"


Here is my question. Which tire is going to stick out of the wheel well more. My current rims rub on the radius arms at full turn and I am trying to advoid that. My current rims have plenty of room and do not rub anywhere at all except at full lock on the radius arms. If the Driv stick out of the wheel well more that is fine with me. I love that look. My 38-15.50-20 mickey thompson mtz will be mounted on the new rimsa s well.

How is the chrome on Driv wheels. Is it going to hold up decent. I had a downpayment on the mazzis but heard to many horror stories about the chrome so I canceled my order. I am gonna regret buying the driv wheels. They look good online and all but how are they to clean. My Diamos are a pain in the butt so I went for a simpler rim that will be easier to maintain. Thanks in advance for allt he help

Am I correct in my assumption that the new Rim Driv Blitz is going to stick out 1.22 more inches than the old one. Help me out Im super excited thinking about these rims.
