4.8 advice, please.

I saw a really nice, fully loaded 4.8is on BMW AUC list and in a moment of madness, decided to go for it and part-ex my 3.0i.....now I know the subject has been done to death, but which winter wheel alloys and tyre size would be your best recommendation, given that my 17" winter wheels with hardly any wer to the Vredestein Wintracs won't fit over the 4.8's brakes?

Would the OEM style 58, 74 or 99 18" wheels fit the 4.8 - are there any caveats? And is a 255/55R18 all round the best choice of tyre (if I can find any!!) I'd rather buy a set of winter wheels now, though, than wait till December

The 4.8 is a 2005 Le Mans Blue, low mileage around 27000 - will post pics after I've collected it from the dealers, its got a long list of optional extras, including the auxiliary heating with remote that the diesel owners usually delight in.....will post more about it after collection. Hope I've made a sensible choice
