Question New with ML430 in BC and Looking for Steel Rims

First time Benz owner. We bought it for my wife. She doesn't have to drive the big Dodge 2500 Diesel. It is a well cared for vehicle. There are many other choices out there, but very few with the cachet of a MB. I am running into our first challenge: steel rims for the winter. We have stock 17's with 275/55R17. Too wide for the snow. I am looking for steel 16s with the right offset. The local dealer look in a book, look blank and move back to a summer rim. I am looking at Audi 16s from an A4. The rims are 16x7 with a 37 mm offset. 1010tires calculator puts the outside track very close and increases the space inside significantly. We are looking for reliable input with experience.
