NO 17" steel wheels for SLK350

I just heard from my dealership that there are no steel wheels available for 17" wheels. On my SLK I can't use 16" because of the size of the brake calipers.[:(!]
My options are presented as:
A) Have the summer/snows removed/replaced seasonally. [V]
B) Buy another set of 10 spokes.[:(]
As you can imagine, I'm not really happy with either solution.

I'm asking for opinions/advice and does anyone know if there are 17"steel wheels out there??? [?]
Thanx guys. [8]

Let me take you on a SEE CRUZ!

Basicly what it comes down to
is that 17" steel wheels aren't
available, 16" yes.

www.tirerack.com
click on winter tires.
Input year, make and model
The US doesn't have the CLK 350,
so you can chose one that is close.
You should see a link to a winter
tire package deal.

Louis.

Final understanding:
SLK350 Has NO steel wheels available, they are not strong enough material at 17" - and 16" wont fit because of big brakes.
