2001 S Wheel off-set

I'm looking at replacing the wheels on my 01 S and I need some advice on wheel off-set. Does anyone have any recommendations that work / look good on the car? I think the stock rims are 52mm front and the rear 56mm. I' going to stay with 18" wheels.
Thanks guys!

Thing is I have been thinking of getting a new set of alloys for ages. I have bought alloys for my last car but the company that supplied them to me sold me the wrong offset and they rubbed on rear arches like mad.Subsequent modifications, among steering geometry, were the addition of 15 reinforcements welded into the sub frame to allow 18" wheels on '98 on.

I run Fronts 18 x 8 / ET49, Rears 18 x 9.5 / ET43. The car is not lowered, and I don't use spacers.
