16" + ?
17" + 215/50/17 = 0.06%

Now, other than having a TPMS installed is there anything else I really need to know before purchasing?
I honestly am putting aesthetics on the backburner for winter tires.

again, Thx!
16" = 215/55R16

If you are putting aesthetics on the backburner you could purchase new 15 or 16" steelies for about 50.00 each at Discount Tire or Tire Rack.

Also if you are purchasing used rims you will want to make sure the bolt pattern is: 5-108mm

Here is a list of vehicles that have rims with that bolt pattern. The offset may be slight different but should work fine:

Ford
Taurus/Sable 91-07
Thunderbird 89-04
Windstar 95-04

Jaguar
S-Type 99-03
X-Type 01-03

Lincoln
Continental 88-94, 95-03
LS6 00-03
Mark VII 93-00

Mercury
Cougar 89-98
Sable 86-05

Volvo
240 76-93
740 83-98
850 94-00
940 91-98
960 94-00
C70 98-00
60 Series 00-03
70 Series 98-03
90 Series 98-00
XC90 03
