Wanna help me make a decision???

So, I've saved up some cash lately and am about to make a purchase for the Jeep. My current situation: My current wheels are not the best looking, a little oxidized and corroded, and have too much backspacing. They make the tires rub the LCAs at full lock. I want new ones. The ones I've been eyeballing are MB Chaos 5s. They are 15x8, 3.75" backspacing, and $100 a piece. I would get (5) of them for my (5) 33x12.5r15 Goodyear Duratracs. I also DO NOT have any bumpers for my Jeep, nor any front recovery points. I'm a little weary of driving like this due to crazy drivers on today's roads and in fear of getting stuck. The cops around here do not care if I have bumpers or not. I saw the other posting for the Engo e9000 winch for $289 with free shipping and it looks to be a great deal. I found a nice looking bumper on ebay for around $210. It is not the best bumper out there, I know. I would love to have a really nice high quality bumper but the funds aren't here. That being said, I don't go hardcore wheeling in my Jeep, at least not yet. So I'm sure I'll be fine with a lower quality cheaper bumper for the time being. The bumper I'm looking at is a Tuff Stuff winch bumper. It looks almost identical to the Smittybilt XRC and looks to have a built in winch plate. I would be able to get the winch AND bumper for about the same price I could get the wheels for. In y'alls opinion, what would you do? Here is a pic of these wheels, winch, and bumper. Thank you in advance for the responses. I really appreciate it.


Here's a crappy job of cropping them on my Jeep.
