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...

these:

and these:

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...

Well apparently it looks like Rials... got a response back from Elliott after I asked about fitting the 335 brakes, and no such luck

Unless someone has a set of OEM 17s to offer?

The Rial Salerno does clear the brakes on the car. I can't speak for the other brand of wheel that we don't carry as I do not know if it will fit.

yes Gary, it looks like my options are down to the Rials or else used OEM wheels. I'll have to order something soon before everyone starts thinking about winter. Thanks for the reply.
