Rim Question on Gen4?

I've finally narrowed my rim choices to these two rims:
(I'm hoping my Photoshop "skills" are right?)

American Racing Maverick
:
-17"X7.5"
-40mm offset
-Machine Face w/ Anthracite Accent
-22.6 lbs.
-This is how it looks on my car:



Alloy Eagle Alloy Series 192:

-17"X7"
-38mm offset
-Polished
-21-25 lbs. (roughly)



Questions:
-Which look better?
-Will the Alloy Eagle Alloys 192 stick out too far?
-Are the Alloy Eagles rims hard to keep clean as well as too flashy for my car?
-Lastly, would I have rubbing issues with my tires with the Alloy Eagles?
(Btw, I'm going with the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110- 225/50-17)B)

Are the ones in pic 4 the same as pic 3? Pic 3 looks polished, pic 4 looks chrome and like different wheels. I, personally, wouldn't go with chrome on a white car. I like pic 3 the best. I would think you'd be fine with that size, as far as rubbing.

BTW nice photoshopping job!

I believe 3/4 are the same wheel and I do like those better than the first set. They seem to fit the car better appearance-wise. The first set's thin spokes look more like something you'd see on a sport compact car. They also appear to have tires that are too thin...they look like rubber bands (hate that look and ride quality).

Pics 3 and 4 are the same, but where I got the photos of the rims are different. That's probably why they look a little different. I tried not to make the tires look to thin, but where they look "sporty." And thanks for the quick replies! B)
BTW here are the actual pictures:
