Need a set of winter wheels and all season tires.

I need to find a decent wheel/tire combo that will get me through the winter. I'm not planning on driving in snow or ice but need to be able to drive when I need to. My daughters car turned in to a POS and now she's using my wife's car, which in turn trickles down to my wife using mine, so here we are. Any help would be appreciated. Tirerack wasn't much help.
 
I just bought a rim and tire package from American Muscle that I am very happy with. I got the charcoal AMR wheels with General G-Max tires. The front are 19X8.5 with 245/45/19 tires and the rear is 19x9.5 with 275/40/19. I also got them mounted and balanced with the TPMS installed. Shipping was free and the total price including new lug nuts was a little less than $1800.00.

I went too AM found some 18" rims for $140 per.^ thanks for your input, I didn't think to go there. I did find some cheap tires ( 275x40 ) at tirerack for $135. For a couple of months of cold weather driving they should due. A question for the people that run a square set-up on the track - If I went this set up would I be rubbing up front if I went to the tuning limit? While parking for example?
 
I got my rims and tire's installed today and I'm happy with them, here's some pic's I took with my phone.
