What wheels do you like and why? I need help choosing

I am running stock Style 68's currently with stock sport suspension. I live in a 4 season climate and will probably end up with an HR Cup Kit, Or shocks/springs combination, nothing slammed or TOO aggressive. I do not have a ton of cash to do this but I would like a very light or fairly light, good looking, strong/reliable wheel to run for most of the year and would like some input.

1. Should I run 17s? More rubber to the ground and less wheel usually means better performance but I think 18's will probably look light years better? I'm not sure.

2. I run staggered currently, what are the pros and cons of squared vs staggered on my car? Being able to rotate will be nice but will my handling suffer because of it or am I not even going to notice it?

Here is the car:
