What wheels for my car?

so as most of you know im in need of new wheels. Either 18" or 17", probably leaning more toward 17's though. Trouble is I don't know whats gonna fit and what's not gonna fit. the car is lowered on bc coils, it is pretty low and i did want to keep it that way. atm I have BK MPS wheels and I was after something that doesn't look so OEM. but i dont want them to hang that far out of the guards, if anything underneath with a bit of camber. (like Josh's car).
I have a budget of about $1200 for wheels and tyres. I thought about getting some 17x8.25 +35 xxr 530 in chromium black, anyone else recommend something else for me?

heres my car:


here's josh's car:

Rupe has a few sets. They're the latest design of 5 spoke mso1r mazdaspeed wheel.
They'd give a sporty edge to the car, unique and will get noticed. If i had a dollar for every mazda nut that notices my s***box only for the rims...well i could probably afford some new stickers for 'em.

Rupe?

The Weds came first.

MS-01S are the forged one-piece 5-spoke.

hmmm they look nice rupe, just not sure about the colour... also i think that 'drift' look is what i'm going for... or something to 'stance' out the car a lil more. I think i might just go with these:

I like them, i don't know of anyone else who has them and there pretty cheap. Also rupe how much is that set u have?
