Default Winter Wheel Options

So I'm in a bit of a predicament.

I need a 2nd set of wheels for my winter tires (or summers depending on what they look like), not too worried about price. The problem is that I'm at stock ride height and can't afford to lower my car at all...

Basically I don't want massive wheel gap or have that monster-truck stance. I've heard spacers may change the look a little, not sure how good those are for the axles or anything

Oh well, someone wanna drop some knowledge / wheels that won't look terrible at stock ride height?

thanks amigos

How about stock wheel size? You can usually find stock wheels the classifieds for a decent price. You could paint them if you want a different color

Did you try reading the wheel and tire section?

Essentially you want someone to suggest, without any sort of budget, a wheel for you to buy to mount a summer/winter set of tires to?

Spacers will push the wheel/tire out, not change wheel gap.
