Focus ZTW Rim/Wheel swap

My wife loves her ZTW wagon with 5 speed, but in Chicago, she has trouble with the Low profile tires staying on the pavement with the rain and snow we get. Plus, she keeps forgetting to air up the tires, so when they get lower or when it gets colder, they need air. She's pinched a couple sidewalls that way. Anyway, she's done buying expensive tires, and wants to trade the tires and rims for some plain rims and higher profile tires. Right now I think she has 16 inch factory rims. So am I right to think we need something like 15 inch rims and tires to match? I'm also thinking the tires should be fine if they are the same overall mounted height as the originals. Let me know if I'm wrong, and how I should go about getting the swap done.
Thanks!
Matt
