Wheels with low offset and larger rear width for 5th Gen

Ive been looking and looking for rims for the last week or so now and its making me ask a lot of questions i cant answer since im kinda new to the rim situation.

I have a wish list, perhaps some ppl can help me if i post it here.

Wish list:
-18"
-concave rims
-rims which have spokes that end literally at the edge of the rim (no additional outer perimeter)
-front 8.5 to 9??
-rear 9+
-front low offset, wide stance
-rear even lower offset to avoid spacers but good stance
-would love to find a rim that i dont need spacers for, using low offset

Samples similar to what i like:
Design + concave: http://www.tsw.com/alloy_wheels_max.php
Spokes to edge + concave: http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse....%2Es&pID=78829
Rear deeper than front (made for rear wheel drive car???): https://maxima.org/forums/5th-genera...ml#post9056229

Questions:
-is 9" or 9.5" on the front too much for 2002 nissan maxima?
-how do i find rims that have different widths for rear/front wheels?
-what are some other wheel databases out there where i can select dimensions and see a list of all manufacturers other than the following?
http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse.com/
http://www.mostwheels.com/
-should i go 19"??

I can help a bit. 9 in front is completely fine, just make sure you run the right tires or you will have rubbing issues. Like 235/40/18 up front if you want a little stretch. I'd get like a +20 or +25 offset wheel for the front. That would look great. It all depends what tire size you get man, like I had told you I want to run the 370z rears up front with the +15 offset. I would run 235/40/18 and have no rubbing.

19's are too much. Too big, too much money, tires are too damn expensive.

9.5 is fine it just depends what your offset is man. It may be too wide if you have a low offset.

im nearly 100% convinced that i should get the following setup:

XXR 530 Hyper Silver (my car is dark gray luster)

Front: 18"x8.75" +20mm
Back: 18"x9.75" +20mm

Just hoping the back will now be plush with the fender and look like its staggered

Price in CAD: ~$1000 (rims only)

or should i go

Front: 9.75" but with +30mm offset
Back: 9.75" +20mm

this way i get all the grip i want up front, and might still get a nice staggered look

I'd stagger offset for sure since you're not staggering width.

What's the purpose of having offset when you have fwd. won't it create more wear on the rear?

it shouldnt actually, if you have +0 offset, then the lug nuts attach to the wheel in the center of the rims, this can actually add balance in my eyes.

So I can't put 8.5 on front and 9.5 on the rear with no issue as long as the offset is 0? Is that correct?
