BUYING WHEELS - question from the newb here *

Hope everyone in the northeast like myself is holding up okay with this snowstorm..

I'm purchasing a set of Lexus wheels next week, just wanted to ask some questions. Unfortunately most of the tread on the wheels is done.. so my questions won't pertain too much to that, but more or less the actual rims.

Can you please give me some advice on things I should look for/be aware of with the rims purchase.

For example
- curb rash, which is easy for someone like me even
- what else should I check for? or possible to check for?

If you can, before you purchase them, have a tire shop check out the rims for bends. You will end up paying for the inspection, but that's better than buying bent wheels. If the tires are still on the wheels, the shop can also submerge the wheel to make sure they don't have any leaks.
