Run Supply pipes on unfinished sides of studs

Wanted to ask and get thoughts on if its ok to run the supply pipes for my basement bathroom on the unfinished surface of the wall. I framed the wet wall with 2x4's, but am thinking I should have used 2x6. There is a vent in the wall so I cannot run a straigt line of pipe.

So should I run the pipes on the utility room side, i am never going to finish this room?

Or should I redo the wall with 2x6's and notch the pipe in the wall?

You could always fir out the wall with 2X2s. Make sure you use a steel plate over the pipe to prevent running a screw or nail into it.
