Default Steel rims

Does anyone know where I can get some Steel rims in the original fitment? I want to put some winter tyres on them for hacking about when the weather finally turns.

There's no original fitment steel rims, only alloys. A 17", details here;

Even if you found something suitable for the rear, the car will look awful on steel wheels. Best bet is a 2nd hand set of OE rims or similar and put winter tyres on them.

They offered a couple of different options for winter wheels,

there is a old picture of these fitted to a foreign coupe and they look very odd due to the strange rear offset

never seen steel winter wheels on a coupe but should be able to be done with a mix of e36 and e39 wheels?
