I should take any wheel that you want to use, you just need to measure to see how much offset you need

It depends more on how low the car is, the suspension used, all that makes much more than the fenders (99% of people use stock fenders).

You REALLY need to get some wheels and trial fit them. You need to stand back and look at it with these wheels. If you don't do both those things you will likely be sorry. All you get when asking people is what their opinion on wheels or colors.

Ok you want my opinion, put 15" Polished five spokes and paint it red.
