Wheels: (same as msumlin)
ASA AR1 18x7.5, 52 offset, silver w/machined lilp - 22 lbs

Tires:
BFGoodrich KDW2 225-45/18 - 25 lbs

Mounted package from Tire Rack ( http://www.tirerack.com )

For now I've decided I'm not going to lower the car. No fender roll, no rubbing (it's tight, but everyone says you can get away without rolling on this setup)

You guys don't know how long I've had this thread bookmarked. I'm glad to say that I finally got some new wheels, and this thread helped me a lot with which size, tires, kind of wheel etc.

So here you:
5zigen Pro Racer GN, 17x7.5 (matt silver, even though they look kind of gunmetal)
Tires are Falken Ziex ZE 512, 215/50 R17 no rubbing, but with 17's I think that's kind of difficult to do.

You can check out a couple more pic's at my car domain site.

Wheels: ALT Meka's from Heronew's Group Buy, 18.7.5 +42 20lbs 73mm hub bore
Tires: Kumho Ecsta SPT 225/40/18
Springs: Racing Beat
Fenders: Rolled, hell yeah rolled because the first time I didn't roll enough of them and rubbed like hell over some bumps. Not fun. Roll them all the way down the side towards the front of the car if you do it, that part will get snagged even though it looks like they won't.

Fender are not rolled, no rubbing. Did some aggressive mountain driving and etc, still no rubbing. I still plan on rolling the fenders just in case but I've checked and monitored quite a bit so far. I will update if anything changes.

These wheels are 18x8" Volk Racing Kuwagata's with a +42mm offset. The tires are Nitto NT555's P225/40ZR18's. I have not had any issues with the wheels rubbing, however the car is not lowered. If I did lower it aggressively I almost guarantee there to be rubbing issues if the fenders were not rolled. The wheels are extremely light compared to the stock wheels and they handle better than the stock wheel and tire combo.

ADR 18X7.5 +48 offset wrapped by KUMO SPT's 18/40/225
thanks to all for the assistance from the form on the tire selection. I could never go back to the stock tires now.
On the issue of rubbing: None what so ever but car is at stock ride height. Will Fender roll before lowering to be safe.
