Looking for some input/suggestions

Happy New Year to everyone!

So like many of us, my e46 is currently hibernating for the winter, but I have been planning to get the SSR GT3 rims I recently bought refinished before the summer. My conundrum is that they are currently on the car, parked in a condo underground and I have no other rims to put on the car and no real ideas on how to get the rims off for the couple weeks to get them refinished. I'm not about to drive it to the rim shop because of the current conditions outside and the fact its got no insurance on it for the winter. Should I try to find someone that has an extra set of rims and tires I could rent and switch them or sit the car on jack stands for the week? I've never liked leaving a car on jack stands for any sort of time, especially in a public parking garage so I'm not sure what other options I might have.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
