If the rims you found are any bigger than 15" in diameter then you'll probably have a tire that has a significantly larger diameter than OEM causing speedo error. For example a 16" diameter wheel with those tires will cause a 6% error

If the wheel is 14" in diameter, you would have a tire that would have minimal speedo error, but it probably wouldn't fit over your front brakes, since the minimum OEM wheel size is 15".

AND, as the poster above mentioned narrower is better for snow/winter tires.
