Winter tires and insurance for your new ST

These two aren't exactly related but they are issues that came up for me as I picked up my ST2, so I wanted to put them out here for the board's collective wisdom.

1. I'm with AAA and they were able to manually enter the car, but I've yet to receive any quote or confirmation. They sent a certificate of insurance form to the dealership so I was able to drive it off the lot, but that was it. State Farm was able to quote it for me as it found the ST in its system by VIN unlike the others, but it basically gave me a red-light quote (over $7K/year). Curious to see what the experience was like for the folks here.

2. I've been advised to check out 235/45-17 Dunlop WinterSport 3D ($744/four on Tirerack). Any good (cheaper?) alternatives? Also, what wheels would you recommend if I were to get a set? I like the look of the smaller Fiesta wheels (the five-section snowflake) but the bolt pattern doesn't fit the ST. I would probably want to go as small as possible (WRC reasoning), so 16s?
