Thanks for all the help, the norm!
I'm happy to report that I was able to secure a set of 16" steelies with 2 season old winter tires from Craigslist. The set was from an old Volvo that the guy sold and luckily for me, the tires didn't fit the mini van that he replaced the Volvo with.
$360! I had to get them rebalanced, but they work great. About 20% wear on the tires so they should last me a season or two.
Thanks again to all the people that helped me out.
