Change out airbag wheel for non-airbag wheel.

So my Mini has an IED, er airbag wheel. I'm none too fond of it. What are my choices in replacing it with a non-IED wheel? Also, is there a how-to article on this? I search but I keep getting hits on...

I guess easy to get and legal for road use depends on your location. One thing they aren't is "cheap". They are U.S. DOT legal and in current production, available from www.tirerack.com

I would consider going to 195/45-15's but what rims? The ones I have are 13x7 with a -7 offset. I've been unable to find anything like that in a 15.

Tires

Is anyone using Toyo Proxes R888 225/45-13's? That looks like the last tire left in production on the planet.
