Can I put 10 spokes on 16 spokes

I believe my car has 15x6 16 spoke rims. Can I purchase the 10 spoke 15x6 and will the fit?

Is the difference just the look? Or is there some size difference?

00-11 focus use 4x108 bolt pattern, all the same. 15's will fit just the same as the other set of 15's.. one may weigh slightly different than the other but otherwise, no real difference. They should have similar offset (if not the same, especially if they are both oem.)

I keep seeing 15x6.5. I'm pretty sure the svt can take 6.5, but some listings say all 00-07 focus's can, is that right?

00-11 foci all have the same bolt pattern which is 4x108. 15x6.5 is the wheel size, 15 inch diameter x 6.5 inches wide.
