MK3 OEM Steelies What Size Is Best?

hey guys just looking for a quick input from all you Winter Wheel and Tire people out there. I have the Black Pack 17s on my 2013 Focus. There so nice and I don't want to wreck them by putting them through a Chicago Winter. I've seen a few sets of Steelies on my local CL for cheap was wondering which size wheel is more Ideal for Winter. The Ford OEM 15X6 Focus rim or 16X6.5?

either, really. I guess whichever you can find decent winter tires for cheaper is really your best bet, or which tire size you can get the cheapest.

My 16 steels/oem tires did extremely well last winter here in Chicago.

If you have any interest . . . I have a set of Ford 16" steelies (with TPMS), SFE hubcaps, and Kumho Ecsta 4x tires I might be selling. I've used them the 2 winters (late fall-early spring). (I have the 18" Titanium Wheels/tires for Summer, but may just purchase all-season for the 18" and sell the 16".)

If not, no worries. (I'm in Cincinnati.)
