Default wheel brands and what looks good

i was wondering if anyone knew some common wheel brands that actually fit on our bonnies. i know a lot of people (like enkei, volk, roja, etc.) only offer 5x114.3 or other various methods. american racing and motegi offer 5x115.

what i am looking for right now are some black chrome, or antracite (like the enkei dm5s) in 18' and im having some trouble inding places that carry them in 18" with the proper bolt pattern and even offset sometimes.

please list any that you know and i would be really grateful thankss

EDIT:

ive pretty much made up my mind as long as i can find them. i really really really really really really really (if you couldnt tell, i REALLY ) want the enkei dm5s in 18". a member here already has teh 17" and..well..i cant find them online anywhere so i called a local store to see if they carry them and he will get back to me. the antracite look is so gorgeous because i mean its not like death black but its not bright chrome either. makes it look like a sick *** car imo . n e ways...if anyone knows where i could find them online that would be great... EITHER THAT OR IF YOU COULD FIND ME A BRAND THAT LOOK LIKE THEM!? thanks

mike

uploaded some pictures of the dm5s.

the grand prix is 17" and the bonneville is 17"

the scion is 18"

it makes me wonder... i cant find the wheel specs anywhere... which m eans i cant find the sizes, the bolt pattern, the offset, etc... but if 2 pontiacs have it, maybe it has a 5x115 bolt pattern?
