Perfect black Wheels for a black 5th gen lude

Anyone here own a black 5th gen lude with aftermarket wheels. Was wondering which wheels match a black lude. I am looking to purchase some black Axis Reverb 17x7.5 with 205/40/17 combo for $1050. Offset is 42mm. Will this setup be Ok or will i run into problems...for example speed accuracy, rubbing issues, and etcs. I'll planning to lower the lude about 1.5 to 2". I was reading other forums and found that with 17 wheels..its recommended that you go with 215/40/17 with a high offset..perfer 45mm to 52mm. The problem is that this wheels only comes with an offset of 42mm and 205/40/17 tires. Is there anyway to increase the offset..

plan on purchasing a camber correction kit if you're going to lower. Also you should consider upgrading the shock/struts and not just throwing springs on the old ones.
