Help me choose new shoes :)

Hey guys so I need a new pair of shoes for my ride (bored of current cheapo rims lol)... Im really thinking about the Volk TE37 in matte black TA, I was also thinking bronze but I dont think it would flow as well with my car.... I really wanted a set of 360 forged CF rims but I saw them on a SL 63 amg this weekend and they looked terrible quality for what you pay....heres a video of my car (exhaust tips on now had to shave a bit of the CSL rear diffuser), help me if you have any suggestions...

I guess no vendors have these volk te37 rims on hand, also apparently they discontinued the time attack version so it would have to be custom powder coated special order... If I special order these rims it will take 8-10 weeks, unfortunately it will most likely start snowing in 10-12 weeks here in Canada anyone know where I can find these rims now? (paging anu lol)

So I am going to order a set of volk te37, there going to take 2-3 months so i won't be putting them on untill next season obviously, there's a couple different offsets I can go with...

I'm starting to also think of going down to a 18 I just am so use to 19s that I'm most likely going to stick with the 19s but here are the offsets I can go with...

19x8.5 et 35 front, 19x9.5 et 42 rear or 19x9.5 et 36... My current rims are 19x8.5 et 35 but I have a 3mm spacer to clear my brembos making it 32 et and my rear is currently 19x9.5 et 40... So really the fronts Im obviously perfect with but the rears I can either get et 42 with a 3mm spacer making it 39et or just buy the et36 rears but the only
problem is my fenders are currently rolled pretty much flat and I'm slightly rubbing over bumps/dips so i doubt I'll be able to fit the et36 without rubbing even more, or is that not that huge of a difference from et40 to et36? Sorry guys I'm a wheel noob I just don't want
to order my rims and have them not fit especially since these rims
are special order pretty much! Any help/opinions would be much apretiated! Thanks!
