What to get?

I think I've made up my mind. I was looking for black rims with polished lip for a while now and I think I'ma go with the Racing Hart GT5 black. Previously I had Exel TZ-10 with 215/35/18. With Jersey and NY roads like they are, I definitely need to upsize. The wheel and tire packages for the RH GT5 are:

225/40HR18
235/40HR18
245/40HR18
215/35ZR18

Which should I get? What would fit? My car is lowered with Tanabe Springs 2" drop all around. The size of each wheel is 18x7.5.

By the way, what does HR and ZR mean?

Thanks for all yall help. thumbsup

I called victoriatire and they said the lip is not polished, it's machined? What does that mean? Will there still be a noticeable difference between the lip and the tire? I have black car so I don't want the wheels to blend into the tires. I want some sort of contrast. Will the machined lip provide a noticeable contrast?

I prefer the look of the 225/40...

HR and ZR are the speed ratings. A ZR rated tire indicates the speed category at which the tire can carry a load - in this case in excess of 168 mph. HR rated tires have a maximum speed rating of 130 mph.
