I reckon a set of ST or RS style rims will suit better.
I think the ones you have on at present look too minimalistic TBH.
A good set of eibach coils would make a diffence too.

Remember that if you increase the rim size you'll need to reduce the tyre to keep your speedo accurate, be aware though that this will make the ride firmer.
30mm is a good drop to start with, just watch your sump on speed bumps.
