Best 18" Alloys For Classic Impreza???

Right guys the car is nearly ready, apart from one final thing...

ALLOYS!!!

I've had enough of the 17" Blitz Techno Speed Alloys I have had for 2 years. They are a beautiful split rim and cost me a small fortune, but they take far too long to clean and me + scooby + welsh "b" roads = dirty alloys in 5 mins!!!

So I think I want some 18" P-WRC1 or PFF7's in gold. What do you think and are there any better alloys on the market that I have missed (bear in mind I want something easy to wash i.e. less than an hour)???

If I went for these alloys, what would be the best offset for my classic (the 17" Blitz Technospeeds are a ET51 offset) and what tyres should be used??? I heard someone say the best offset is ET53 and 225/35/18 tyres???

Help needed me thinks, as I'm not good with alloy wheel offset sizes or tyre sizes!!!

Cheers!!!
