Why not go with -24? That's what I'm rolling with. As soon as I bet them on I will shoot you pics.

They were a good wheel. Well built and balanced good. The 12 wide comes in a -44 offset, so they give it a real mean, wide look.

I like your truck with black wheels. AFs are badass, but it's really hard to justify the price of them, especially when you don't have gobs of cash to unload haha.

Most one piece Fuel wheels that are 20x10 come in both -12 and -24 (5" and 4.5" of backspacing), but it's hard to find someone that carries the -24s, as most are the -12s. They don't make anything with a -14 offset, to my knowledge haha.

Mikey's Full Blowns are two piece wheels, which is why they come in -19. Two piece wheels cost $400-500 more than their one piece counterparts, but have a larger lip on them.

20x12 -44s actually have less backspacing (4.75") than 20x10 -24s. But they're wider and stretch the sidewalls of the tires out. Wider, but noticeably reduce the total height of the tire.

Sorry if that was rant-ish, but I figured I'd clear some of that up.


If you want Fuel wheels, order now! My Mavericks are on back order, and I should've ordered them weeks ago haha. But now I MIGHT have them by the week of July 4th. Had to push back my lift date and everything.

I agree with the whole idea of them being too much. If I do get new wheels, which I am really considering, it'll be a little closer to the end of next month. We've got a shop local that stocks most girl wheels at their warehouse. Once I get my toe mirrors in hoping to turn around and sell my stock mirrors pretty quick.
