17" winter wheels for E92 335i

OK so I determined that I done screwed up and the wheels/tires I bought won't fit in my E92. I can still salvage the situation though by buying some new wheels and having the tires (near-new Blizzaks, this is to be a winter set) swapped on, that'll still be less than buying both new.

If anyone has some 17" wheels that fit an E92 coupe let me know, otherwise I'll be ordering some wheels shortly.

I think I've narrowed it down to two, which were the recommendations of their respective vendors...

Now the D-force are waaaay lighter and IMHO a little better looking, but are they worth the extra money over the Rials ($966 shipped vs. $556 + shipping, probably $100 or so) for a winter set? Anyone running them and have real world opinions on them? Is that lightness a bad thing for real-world driving on less than perfect roads?

thanks for any opinions...
