    BBS are a good choice. Also look at Enkei, O.Z., Speedline, and do a search for fitment info.

    Search "offset" because this along with width will determine whether the wheel will fit at all, stick out too much, etc. there were several fitment threads here recently.

    Some Konig is good. If you can find a good website you can usuallydo a search specific to year, make, model. Then can search by factory size or plus sizes. If you go plus sizes you'll need tires as well.

    Koenig are not good wheels. Avoid them.

    The weight of a wheel can have a significant measurable effect on performance. The lighter, the better. Two solid affordable lightweights: OZ Alleggerita and Enkei RPF1.

    Offset is the vertical displacement of the wheel's center from the hub. It can be measured in +\- mm, meaning the wheel will be displaced that much either direction. This is a rough explanation. There is a FAQ around somewhere.

    You can do several different options and several different widths. What I have found is exact proper fitment for the 11+ is an 17" or 18" wheel, 9" wide with an offset of 44. You can go with a 40, 38, 35 offset but that's just getting more and more poke. The 38 offset is where it starts requiring a little camber (but still within spec) and rolling rear fenders. You can also go with a 9.5" wide rim if you'd like but 265/35/18 tires fit great and they fit better on a 9" wheel
