Sport Edition Wheels - Tire Rack?

Does anybody know anything about this Sport Edition wheels that Tire Rack carries? They seem awfully inexpensive at $89 each. I didn't want to go crazy with the wheels on a winter set up but I don't want crap on there either.

I am looking at a winter set up and they have a recommended package that has these wheels in 16" with Bridgestone Blizzak WS60 tires.

16" is on the small side from a looks perspective but I am liking the idea of all that extra side wall since the roads usually get a lot of pot holes in the winter.

I can get the whole package mounted/balanced with TPMS for $1,116

16" won't fit on a 335i. It won't clear the brakes.

Same situation here -- I got the sport edition wheels in a 17'' setup with Michelin Xice3 to get me through the winter -- I dont know much about them but they look okay and I'll see how they hold up this winter...

I ordered Sport edition A7 & pirelli winter runflat tires (inc. BMW cpas) from tire rack.

Sport edition is kind of popular alloy rims for winter tires, I guess.
FYI;
