What d' ya' think?

Getting new rims and tires soon... I'm set on BFG AT's 31" x 10.5" r15, but I'm kinda stuck on what rims I want to get. I know everyone has the AR baja's but I like 'em none the less, so none of that "everyone has them" stuff please. I've seen the Outlaw 2's on several trucks in person and I'm leaning more and more towards them (they're cheaper too). One of the things I like more about the Outlaw's than the baja's is the machined finish compared to the pollished aluminum... I wish the baja's came in a "not so pollished" version or something... so??? Poll's up now...
AR Outlaw 2


AR Baja (172 series, not the chrome)


The truck they'll be on... if that helps...


My lame attempt at a photoshop a while back with someone's AR bajs's... Back's way too low...

One of my friends has a the American Racing rims and like after 2 years they started rusting, Idk if this has been fixed or not but i am still cautious about them. I like the Mickey Thompson II's.

I've seen some rusty American Racing rims on vehicles before... on old un-washed vehicles. I wash my truck fairly regularly and don't have to deal with any salt or anything... O.C. for me :)

Bah, busy my @$$! Get 'em. I had Baja's to start off, then got tired of seeing every 1 out of 4 trucks having them.

The outlaw's are kinda busy, but they look sick in person. A few rangers at school have 'em and I like the look. Then again, I love the simplicity of the baja's. Nice and clean. But I just wish the baja's would come in a "not so pollished" finish or a machined finish.

The scores tied guys... that doesn't help me any, haha! I was lookin' at some of trucks at school today and saw a few rangers with Baja's but the backspacing on 'em must be way different than stock cuz they looked really "deep"... I hope that's not how they would look on my truck. Anyone with baja's got pics? Outlaw 2's besides trent?

I'm buying 15x10 Bajas. I agree with the simple look. Simple and clean.

I'm about 95% sure I'm gonna go with the baja's... found a nice place online that's got 'em for a good price (although the outlaw's are still cheaper). Any last words?
