New Rims To Finish Off The Transformation!

I am looking on various websites for some new rims and tires. They will be replacing my stock setup. I have tentatively narrowed it down to a few wheels:

1) Enkei Performance LF-10 (18x7.5)


2) Enkei Performance LS-5 (18x7.5)


3) Enkei Racing RPF1 (18x7.5)


4) O.Z. Ultraleggera (18x8)


Please feel free to leave your comments and suggestions. Criticism will be read, but not responded to. I am seeking help in deciding on which wheel(s) would be the best fit, when my project is finished. I am open to additional wheel suggestions. The ideal sizes is 18" (20" is ok, too). I prefer gloss black as the finish. Thanks.

The listed sizes are of the pictures; I was only needing help with which wheel. My ideal width is at least (x8"), because I do not like (.5") widths in wheels.

In regards to the wheels, my choice is somewhat narrowed down to #3 & #4.
Wheel #3 is lightweight. Wheel #4 is a sweet design. I have no clue which one of the 2 (or 4) to choose.

My search for new wheels concluded with results yet to be deisred. Is it my observation that wheels #3 & #4 are the favorite amongst you thus far? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Of all the wheels you have listed there...

No.3 but it wouldn't be in black. Just my opinion.

I had to postpone the purchase due to a medical expenses. The diagnosis of the doctor was worse than that of my ride.

My plans are to purchase #3 and new tires (of course). I am still updating the suspension and undercarriage. Thanks for all the input...it was decision-changing; #4 to #3.
