The problem is that you can't put the deep dish wheels (reversed rims) that you are looking for on a front wheel drive car. There isn't room, especially in the front. The set back on the rear is also insufficent for the reverse rim look. It might be possible in the rear, but you't have to completely change the rear end axle and suspension. As for what you call "the staggared look," you can use different size wheels, especially larger ones in the rear unless you have the traction control. If you have the traction control both front and rear tires must be within 5% of each other.

I have a set of "dished wheels" on my pt. 19" Enkei RP0-7's. They are not a hot rod wheel by any means but I am sure that if one company makes a "dished wheel" that fits the car than other must to.
