Looking for new wheels

well, like the title says, i'm browsing around for some new wheels. The salt has taken a serious toll on my current chrome mazzis and before long im gonna have holes in the wheels. I wanna go 20 or 22" and either a mix of black and chrome or machined or just all black. 2 of been looking at are these:

http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/XD...PXD77822987718

Just wondering if you all have any feedback to give me on these wheels. Also I'm open to suggestions!

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

this is a photo of my 18" KMC Monsters that I have on my truck


and here are 17" American Racing Mojave Teflon on my old truck


never had issue's with either wheel. black is super easy to keep clean, just hose them off every now and then and they look new.

trying to stay away from chrome on this set. The salt keeps murdering the chrome.

Does teflon hold up better than a normal black wheel?

Is the offset correct on those monsters at 18mm? If so thats kinda high(positive) imo. I think the negative- offsets look way better. The Mazzi's are definitely sweet, but pitting sucks. Your truck will look bad a** either way you decide to go!

there should be more than one choice of offset.

that brings up a good point. I don't have a clue how offset works?

Offset is the distance the mounting surface is from the center of the wheel.
Backspacing is the distance the mounting surface is from the edge of the wheel (on the axle side, not the outside)

Negative Offset means the mounting surface is closer to the truck, making the wheels poke out more
Positive Offset is the opposite

The lower the number on backspacing, the more the wheels will poke out
The higher the number on backspacing, the less the wheels will poke out
