Tires and rims, discussion

Hey folks
I'm on a quest to find out a smooth look for my G6 and my Pinto (Civic). Dropping them isn't out of the question but before I do I want the find out as much as I can about what others have done to give the "filled fender" look.
Here's what I think; (just for the G6 for now)
I want to put 18"X8" rims and go with a tire that is an inch taller than stock. I'm not wild about the really low profile tires but I want a bigger rim.
I think the above combo will fill the fender-well enough so I won't need to drop it any. I wish I could find a set-up like this to see what it looks like, it may look ghetto for all I know and that's NOT the look I want.
Any thoughts???
