Can I fit 15" on my Focus2013 SEL

Hey, I recently bought a Focus 2013 SE with four-wheel disc brakes and I was wondering if I could fit a set of 195/65 R15 on my car. the dealer says I can but a tire shop (not ford's) told me it might not fit. If not, which tire would be fine, 205/55R16?

Now, I know my car comes with 17 inches wheel for summer but I figured I might as well install smaller tires for winter since it performs better in snow.

I searched the forum a bit but couldn't find an answer about the four-wheel disc brakes and 15" wheels.

Thank you.

15 should fit, as Focus S models have them...but which model do you actually have? There's no 2013 SEL.

Have 2013 Focus SE with 205 50 R17's, 4 wheel disc brakes. Question: Can I buy 16" wheels and mount up 205 50 R16 Bridgestone Blizacks on all four wheels. I have the tires from a 2010 Focus I traded, they only have 2,500 miles on them. I would like to use the tires, versus paying big$ for new tires. What wheels would fit if possible. Thanks.

Would you know what tire pressure should be used if you use the 195/65/15's? My TI came with 18" wheels and the pressure for those wheels are what's posted and unfortunately my winter package included the 15" wheels.
