American Racing Baja's vs Eagle Alloy 058? pics please

I'm about to purchase new wheels to put on the 2007 Fx4 Level ll with the goals of...

1. Filling out my plastic fenders/ widening track
2. New wheels must be similar in appearance to my Alcoas

I think I want to go 15x8 with new 31" bfg's going on because I'm not leveled or lifted.

If I'm not mistaken, the backspacing on the Baja's is 3.25" and 3.75" on the Eagle Alloy's: Making the Baja's stick out half an inch further.

Anyone have any history with either wheel, preferences, and or pictures mounted on the truck?

Briefly. If my truck only ever saw pavement, I'd consider spacers. But with my job, I don't want to have something fail on me in the middle of nowhere. I'm not comfortable having the wheels extended out from the hubs

32x11.5 on AR Bajas. Love the look of them, but you have to take them off in the winter, or you will be steel wooling the crap out of them in spring.
