Rim poll please cast your vote. Motegi vs. Method

Ordering rims in next few weeks for my 2019 Crystal Pearl White Outback have it narrowed down to two rims. Motegi MR139 17x7 +40mm or Method MR502 Rally 17x8 +38mm offset to be paired with 245/65r17 BFG KO2 or BFG KM3.

I have Motegi FF7 on my car. They are lightweight and look good.

I've never used, or seen much, of the Method rims. Your Method link looks like truck rims.

Me, I'd go for something other than black, or have them painted, since the car is white. Unless you plan on blacking out the car's trim and windows.

I know I only have the 17's, but I think the Konig Control look awesome, IMHO. I do like the Method though. Looks sweet.
Edit: Re-read size, you are going with the 17's too. I also only went with a 45mm offset. It comes exactly to the edge of the fender with 225/65/17.

Really? Method are rally rims for Subaru rally.

Anyway, yes blacking all chrome out. Car will be monochromatic when done.

You lifted? Howís that possible? Typically folks here are running either 245 or 235 65r/17.
