Will 215/60 R16 be a size that will fit?

I know tirerack suggests 215/55 R16 (I really don't even know what these numbers mean...) but I'm loooking to get Hankook iPike tires now as a buddy of mine referred them and said he has been really happy, plus there a bit cheaper than Blizzaks. Just want to make sure that size along with the Momo Winter Pro 16x6.5 5-108 40S are the right size, bolt pattern to fit my Focus.

Thanks guys!
The recommended aspect ration is 55% on a 215. Aka, the side wall height is 55% of the tread width. For reference, I'm running a 225/55/16 on my car as of now. Nothing wrong with it other than, it will get better mileage due to the taller tire.

If that is the tire you want then, run them. The speedo will be 3.3% slower than the recommended size. Even then, its not a guarantee it will be right since, all manufacture's tires are different physical sizes.

The bolt pattern is right for the car. Also, a nifty calculator for comparing tire sizes:

the wheel size looks fine.
another option is 205/55R16 which is a much more common size.
You'd be fine the iPikes. even the cheapest snow tire you can buy will be 100 times better than all seasons

So I placed my order yesterday. Ended up getting

Michelin X-Ice Xi3 tires at 215/55 R16
Steel rims and hub cap
TPMS sensors
Ford Trigger tool
mounted and balanced


All through TireRack for $1100 OTD with $70 VISA card rebate.

Overall I'm pretty happy with my purchase, I appreciate your guys input. Can't wait to get them next week!

Out of curiosity, for any of you who have ordered from Tire Rack, has anybody called you back requesting a phone number listed under Directory Assistance to verify you?

They said this was for fraud protection, which I understand, but I've purchase things online much bigger and never had anything like this before.
