I'd suggest getting the 17" OEM alloys and fitting them with snow tires. 17 inch tires are much cheaper than 18's. Also, you'd be better getting the skinniest snow tires that will safely fit a "Z"....

I suspect the reason that OEM pads are so quiet is that they're soft. Their downside is excessive wear and dust they produce (especially the front pads). While I have Brembo's, there is no noise...
