Then you're off the hook. You can expect that AMAG will only supply rims which are suitable for your car. If something goes wrong, you can hang them for it.
Jag, so OEM rims don't need to be declared to the StVA guys? Or, I still need to declare but it's just a matter of stamping my gray card?

The former. If the rims were a factory option on that vehicle, then the compliance of them is included in the car as a whole.

You only need to provide a CoC and get them listed on the grey if the rims are after market.

EDIT: Just imagine how large the grey card would have to be if it listed every factory option, even if only the ones which are safety relevant!

After a bad experience with Reifendirekt.ch, I am back in the market for a set of winter tyres. I want to do it face to face this time, so if anyone can recommend a garage with reasonable prices in the Zurich area (happy to travel a bit to get to them), I'd appreciate it!

If little travel is not a problem-try atu.
My expereince with www.atu.de ( waldshut-tiengen) has been great so far (not so much with the swiss branches of atu).
Slightly cheaper than reifendirekt after deducting MWST, montage is about 50 Euros and storage of replaced tyres is 35 euros.
not so good side:
They have an online appointment planner but they dont tend to use it effectively. You have to call them to confirm the appointment.

Thanks, makes sense... I just wasn't too sure because my towbar (OEM but installed later) had to be declared and added to the gray card.

iirc Towbars are a bit of an oddity. Not only does the bar need to have the right markings, but you also need to show that it has been fitted by a shop qualified to do the work. Then they add it to the grey card.

I guess the point of having the towbar noted explicitly is that if you remove it and sell the car then the prospective buyer can see that the car has/may have been used to tow stuff. (200KKm towing is harder on the vehicle as a whole than 200KKm.)
