Default Snow chains/cables for stock 2012 xB Sport

Although I have no desire to use them, I need to be ready with the above for my 2012 xB Sport model (with the factory lowering springs); tires are 205/55R17 as I drive to the coast fairly often, through roads that require said devices. I'm guessing that the clearance is a little tight given these springs.

Can anyone recommend a set of chains/etc. for this car?

As a side discussion, if I went for snow tires on a second set of (cheap, non-performance) wheels, what wheelset would you recommend?

Stock steel rims with snow tires. From what I have heard, you want to have a pretty closed wheel for snow driving, so your brakes don't get snow all up in there.
