Need advice on winter setup. please !!!

Hi Guys,

I'm having hard time on buying a set of used rims for my winter setup. I'll be so appreciated if you guys can clear up my mind. Both of them are the same size and same price. 16"

My car is a e90 325i sedan. (Metalic Graphite / Grey)

Option 1:

Option 2:

Option 3:

may be all these rims don't look like as fancy as other rims, but I really don't want to spend too much $$ on the winter rims.
So end up I've narrowed down to these three choices. Will be so appreciated if you guys can clear up my mind.

Thanks very much.

I would prefer option 2 - the look of the rim simply appeals more to me than that of option 1.

I like option 2 but option 1 is more out there which could be appealing
