Or I might step it up a notch and go with these. I think the 7 spoke gunmetal looks awesome, only thing is the rear wheel is only 9":

Its HPO, which is high offset (2010 and newer models now have high offset). I was always a fan of low offset because I liked the exposed lip on the outside. Now if you want some lip action it has to be behind the spokes which IMO is still pretty cool looking with the right wheels. These have more of a stealthy, aggressive, racey look to me which is starting to grow on me over the low offset look. I'll take the lip behind the spokes and have the best of both worlds and the gunmetal isn't too dark like black which IMO is too sharp a contrast.

Lol no, still waiting on Continentals to wear out. These are actually some good tires so gonna be a while. I found them here in 9.5" rear so I will go with these: Vertini Dynasty All Slate Grey 19x8.5 19x9.5 Staggered Wheels

Post pic of your wheels you want to sell, peeps in here might be interested.
