I have the 750iL with the sport package and have been looking also. I will be getting the Michelin Arctic Alpin, the also make a Pilot Alpin version. The Pilot gives up some winter traction in favor of dry road perf. The Blizzak has a failing in my opinion, once the tread is half worn the rubber compound changes and the tire loses much of its effectiveness. The Michelins are good through the whole treadlife. $950 for steel wheels and tires is steep. That is what I have been looking to pay for Michelins on alloy wheels. The Tire Rack will sell you steel wheels and tires for about $600. Shop around a bit more.
