OEM wheels are a safe bet, though I never thought of them as terribly cheap. My factory wheels are about $250 each, I can get solid aftermarkets for less.

Aftermarkets are hit and miss indeed. Usually you can search around and find enough opinion to make some safe bets. For example, I picked up Rial Salernos as my 17" winters based on comments on this forum, and haven't regretted it.

I would recommend picking up 5 wheels if possible though. Wheels are often a limited run, making it hard to match the set if you crack one.
