as for types, there are a lot, go with a personal preference in style.
size, you'll probably be best off with a 17 or 18, i run 17's because i like the look of a meatier tire and my car is lowered now too so i didnt want to chance it with rubbing and hitting. I know several people wih 18's on em with no real problem until slammed on them. you'll run a little more risk of a blow out when you hit potholes and what-not with 18's but itll look really good.

Ya I'm probably gonna go with a 17" rim. I just got a question regarding the thickness of the rim. I found a pair of black ADR rims which I like but they are 17x7 what would be the maxI could go regarding the width. I want the the tire to be as wide as possible.

not certain, i have 7.5's and i know of several that have 8inch width but they may be able to go wider, at least in the back, the front is the main concern because you cant go nearly as wide with the turning radius factored in. not real sure, you may check VXvortex.com for more information on this, they have everything.
good luck
