Default Winter Tire/Wheel for '11 Blue Hatch

I should be getting my new WRX Hatch in Blue within a few weeks (fingers crossed). Luke pointed me to the Dunlop 3Ds as a good choice for buzzing around Maryland and trips up to New England. I just need to pick a rim and pull the pin, so the wheels are ready when the car comes in. Any reason any of these rims would be a bad choice/wouldn't work, etc? The one advantage of getting the Enkie EDR-9 is that I can get the whole rim/tire package from Tirerack, vice ordering tires/rims separately. I would have gotten TPMS if someone had the EZ sensors available, but I can't find them and having to go to the dealer twice a year to turn a light off seems silly. Any thoughts welcome! Here's the three rims I'm looking at, all are 16x7:

Drag DR-9 (+40 offset)

Enkei EDR9 (+45 offset)

Drag DR-33 (+40 offset)

Thanks!

i would go with the enkei wheels because they look better i wouldnt go with black (hate black wheels) but to each his own i guess. as far as any real reason not really enkei is a little more well known and trusted company but its not really that big of a deal. But it is nice that tirerack will mount and balance for free, also ensures that they wolnt damage the wheels. You should be happy with the tires i have the dunlop winter sport 3Ds on some bbs for the winter and love them.
