I would not recommend getting Sport Edition wheels (cheap, ugly, not durable). The best bank for the buck is buying a set of OEM 18's from the for-sale section. They are BBS (high quality) and look good. Why spend 6 months of the year on cheap, ugly wheels? I would also consider apex or VMR's (based on reputation - I do not have experience with either). My next winter wheels (if/when we move back to the midwest ) will probably be 18 x 9.5 apex's with 255/40/18 snows (on all 4 wheels).
