I am considering getting rats one day and I don't know what kind of bedding/substrate to get. I've heard that rats are prone to respiratory issues if certain kinds of bedding/substrate is used, any suggestions?

I like to use Care Fresh Small Animal Bedding. It isn't too dusty, so the rat's lungs can stand it. It is absorbent and rats can dig through it.

You'll often here people saying carefresh is not safe as they used to add dusty bicarb to their product but as far as I know this isnt the case for a long time but there may be some old batches floating around still I suppose.

I have been using oxbow pure comfort bedding which is great value, bulky and cheap. However my rats dont like bedding, they throw it all out!!
