Looking for new wheels

I'm in the market for new wheels. I am looking for mesh style staggered 18's, and just trying to see whats out there. Right now i'm debating between the vmr710's in matte black, forgestar f14's in piano black or hyperblack csl reps, and if possible i'd like to get some bbs ch's. Still trying to decide on offset kind of a noob when it comes to that my car is a sedan on stock height, i plan to lower soon so dont want to run into any problems later on

help and ideas will be appreciated...please and thaks

You can choose any style but make sure you get the right wheel offsets, if you go stagg, go for 18x8.5 ET40 and 18x9.5 ET45, you can use 235/40 and 255/35 tires. that's my current set-up, no rubbing on stock fender.
