Winter tyres and wheels on a 2.4 159

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a set of 17" wheels and winter tyres that will fit over the brembos on a 2.4 159? Some websites state that their 17" wheels will fit the 159, but I'm not sure they've taken the brembos into account on the TI and bigger engined models as I want to ensure I get enough clearance. I'm currently on 19" TI alloys and looking to change for the mother of all winters that's forecast to hit the UK. ��

My 2.4 is on 17 inch wheels, so get a set of lusso 17inch wheels they fit over the brembo brakes, any wheel balancing weights can make it a tight fit.

Yes no problem with the Lusso 17" wheel fitting over the bigger brakes.

My original 17" wheels are fitted with winter tyres and will go back on the car as soon as they start gritting the roads and my Prodrive wheels will be tucked up for the winter.

I am running a 2.4 on these, although the darker coloured ones, which I bought in pretty good if not immaculate condition from someone on here last year. They do look rather expensive though in excellent condition...
