Alloy totally clueless

Im due to pick up a white ES this week and I am thinking of upgrading the alloys.

Unfortunately I am totally clueless when it comes to identifying alloys that are compatible with the civic.

Can anyone tell me what any of the codes etc mean on the page shown in the link or just give me some general advice on how to identify alloys that will fit my car:

Turriff Tyres | Alloy Wheel & Tyre Specialists

Im thinking of the 18" Zito Z 789`s

Edit: Sorry i cant link to the exact page but they are in the 18" section

OEM 5x114.3 et55 7Jx17" (7.5x18 FN2) 64.1 bore size

5x114.3 means 5 bolt pattern on a 114.3mm diameter circle.

et55 means the inside face of the wheel that bolts to the hub is offset 55mm fro the cenetrline of the wheel.

7Jx17 mean 7" wide wheel with 17" diameter.

64.1 bore is the hole in the wheel that mates with the protusion on the hub to keep the wheel centered.
