Default Good (cheap) supplier for OEM winter wheels

I'm looking to get a set of winter wheels/tyres for my V60CC. I'd be looking to stick with OEM wheels. Ideally I'd get a second hand set but these look to be near impossible to find in the UK, partly because the V60CC has wheel offsets that seem to be unique within the Volvo range (they're not even the same as the V60.)

Next port of call is to get a Volvo winter wheel/tyre kit as these seem to be a lot cheaper than buying individual OEM wheels on their own I've got a quote from my local dealer but they seem to be charging the RRP and can't give any VOC discount on these.
So this brings the question - does anyone know of a Volvo parts supplier who would sell below RRP and are able/willing to courier a full set of wheels? I'd happily consider someone outside of the UK, providing they can ship to the UK and are still cheaper after you factor in Vat and import duties.

What is the offset? My V70 is actually on 940 wheels with the ‘wrong’ offset, but it was like that when I bought it and it’s been fine for 10 years.

Thanks everyone. I've managed to find a lightly used set for a decent price, so I should be all sorted.
