I have not read the whole thread so forgive me if this has already been said or addressed.
To start with, you really really do not need steel wheels at all...! Also, the smaller the wheels the worse the situation for winter scenarios so, above 17" would obviously be better and thats not inclusive of your 330mm Rotors at the front (the rears are smaller) and the Brembo Calipers.
To be honest, what you might want to try is purchase a set of wheels that are the same design or something you like that are Alfa Brera wheels, but a set that have been buffed or curbed even scratched up, because they are bound to be far cheaper, there are no problems with fitment either to the car, the brakes rotors and or calipers nor with the wheels themselves.
We did this with the older 147 and bought a set of naffed wheels really cheap from e-bay that were for the 147 although they were pretty messed up in term of aesthetics, used them for 3 winters with absolutely no problems at all with the added bonus that the alum wheels would not rust and course issues.
Just my 2c worth. Someone may have already said as much or not, either way take it with a pinch of salt...but thats just from my empirical stand point though.
and Japan is obviously no the same as the UK, we have massive snow here while there is no salt used...if so, I would NEVER drive my car on the roads and use a beater instead.

I'm thinking 17" but would these fit over the 300mm Brembo's?
How do our European friends manage?
