Not really, I just test-fit my leftover Blizzaks on my new 15" Voxx rims--they look pretty tiny on there, but they still look decent, and it should settle a little bit.
The tires cost me nothing (they were on the old Protege5), and I got 4 wheels, mounting kit with Gorilla splined lugs, and hubcentric rings for under $400 delivered. Just because they're snow tire doesn't mean they have to look bad.

those wheels do look real small but you are right for snow tires who cares

Why would you get something so vastly different over the OEM size? It's really going to mess with your suspension geometry not to mention your transmission, odometer, and speedometer.

A 195/55/15 would make your speedometer read 8% to fast.

Close enough for me, also it was a recommended size on Tire Rack. Plus, they were paid for 8 years ago!

is it just the Titaniums that have disc brakes on the back?

SEs with Sport, SELs, and Titaniums.

For 2012 Any SE Sport, SE SFE, or SEL and Ti all had four wheel disk brakes.

In 2013 only the SE SFE, SE Appearance Package, and the Titanium have four wheel disk brakes.
