help me select rims

I'm looking for a set of staggered 19" wheels and I really have no idea which rims I should go with.
I was thinking of getting a set of CSL but I prefer ones with big lips in the rear so CSL's out of my choice.
Do you guys have any recommandations? I need to get a set ASAP
thank you in advance..

Axxis Penta...19" 8.5 front and 9.5 rear....heres a pic of my car with them on...i love them...no rubbing either
The lip is chrome and the center if Hyper Dark...very nice looking...some angles it looks chrome other angles it looks like a light gunmetal...This allows me to let the brake dust sit there for a few weeks...i just clean the chrome lip...people dont even notice the brake dust

All you will get is what we like. We need to know more to know whsat you might like. Do you like:

1. Five-spoke style or mesh style?
2. Fairly busy, dense or open where your caliplers and rotos are evident?
3. Heavy, solid look or a more delicate look?
4. Polished rim with black/gunmetal spokes or all one color?

I've narrowed it down to HM2, PG5, HP EVO and Hartge Classics
What do you guys think is the best among those?
I'm gonna order a set today or tomorrow.
It's really hard to pick just one.. wish I could have all of them.
Any other recommandations are welcome.
