Can you be a bit clearer on what you want to do?
Do you want a second set of OEM-sized wheels for winter tires, and keep your existing wheels with summer tires?
Or are you looking at upsizing the summer wheels and tires, and using your existing wheels for winter use?
If it's the former, I'm with Aust350z. Wait until your existing tires die, then get a set of fat wheels for summer use and run the OEM rims in the winter. I realise its going in to winter over there, so if you do have to swap over then see if you can sell the existing tires (or tie them to a tree and use them as a swing).
Also, don't go a higher offset than stock if you're talking about winter wheels. It effectively increases the spring rate, and the last thing you want is less suspension compliance in low-grip conditions.

Understeer is when you hit the tree with the front wheel.
Oversteer is when you hit it with the back.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the tree...
Torque is how far you drag it...
