Want new wheels and need help

I'm not to knowledgable about wheels and what size works for certain cars, but I am looking into buying a new set of aftermarket wheels for my 2010 focus ses. Obviously I'm using the stock SES 17" wheels on 215/45r17 tires. I'm thinking about going 18" wheels. Also I will need new tires if I get a different size wheel like I'm wanting. I already looked on TireRack and other sites and seem to not find what i'm looking for. I really like the mesh style wheels like the XXR 521s, but heard good/bad things about XXR wheels. If someone could help me out on what I should look at as for wheels, offset, width, etc. that would be great! Also I know it needs to be a 4x108 bolt pattern as well. If I decide to go 18" wheels would I still be using the same size tire but change the size to 18" like, 215/45r18?

I did not do anything special to my car besides installing the Eibach sportline springs which is a 1.5" drop.
