Hi...so my mom just put brand new tires on her 2000 mazda protege dx (185/65-14) and recently rear-ended someone and bent her frame so the cars totalled. I also need new tires for my 2007 ford focus se (195-60-15). Would the tires from the protege fit on my focus without any problems? This might be a stupid question, i just dont know much about tires. Thank you very much in advance

They will be on the small side (2.2 inches smaller) from an overall diameter standpoint plus you'll need new wheels. This is way too much. The Focus uses a somewhat unusual bolt pattern that has 108mm spacing. Highly doubtful the Mazda rims have that bolt pattern.
No. There are several problems, the greatest of which is that you cannot fit 14" wheels over your front brakes. Maybe with some crazy expensive wheels that we've never heard of, but then it's not worth it. The good news is that there are affordable tires in your size, compared to 16" wheels. Fuzion HRi on tirerack.com is a respected tire for $48 each, plus shipping.
