Have you checked Tire Rack? I didn't see exactly what you're looking for but several things that came close. Plenty of black w/red lips, orange accents on black spokes, and orange wheels altogether. Give it a gander.

you could also always just paint the lip.. that way you could do an exact color match to the body

I would agree with rrob, you can buy the wheel you want without the pinstripe, take it down to a local body/paint shop and they should accommodate for adding a little pinstripe paint w/ clear coat on the lip.

Thats how the hoodlums do it on their 24"s with them glittery paint jobs and paint matched wheel lips.

Its not too hard just hope that you have a steady hand! : ) But I would just buy a set of rims you like and then just have someone paint the lip on for cheap.

Should look nice bit I'd really recommend adding some lowering springs too. If you're actually interested in that for the general recommendation of say get SSC springs for a combination of low and handling or YYZ springs for handling first then not quite as low bit looks good still.

i was thinking about lowering springs also, and maybe even a body kit eventually.
