Winter wheels for '07 SLK55?

Yes, as much as I hate to say it, winter will be here soon and with with my '07 SLK55 being my primary car now (wife adopted my E500) I need to entertain driving it in less than perfect winter conditions.

So, MB says to use 18x7.5 ET37 on all four corners with 225/40R18 tires. This begs the question, can anyone recommend where to get a set of four decent rims in that size that will fit/work? I can find 8.0 or 8.5 applications with offsets that will roughly match the inset, but will obviously poke more. Also, 225s will fit on a 8.5, but would be slightly stretched.

I just can't easily find four 18x7.5 ET37 wheels with 5x112 bolt pattern and 66.56mm hub bore, outside of a front pair on a staggered OEM set (ie, not complete set).

Any thoughts? I'm sure others have looked for winter sets with these specs. Thanks!
