Fuel hostage vs Mavericks

Hey guys looking to upgrade my tires and rims and got it down to two rims

I have a hydro blue rubicon
Will have 35s trail nittos.
Also 17x10? Or 18x12?

Do you guys like the fuel hostage or the Mavericks better? I am looking for a good offset indent for more of a aggressive look.

I've had Mavericks on my previous jk. I don't recommend them, or the hostage for several reasons.

1. Multi Bolt wheel patterns thats hidden by the very cheap plastic center cover that will scratch the face of the wheels. The center cover is held on my 2 screws ... the other screws are plastic and just for aesthetics.

2. Valve stem location. They are between the spokes facing the spokes. If you use your jeep as a jeep (airing up/down for offroading), you will limit yourself on what tools you can use. Gas station air tools or similar will be very difficult airing up due to the location of the valve stem. You won't be able to use tire deflators such as currie. Only the teraflex keychain tire deflator or similar will work.
