SOME 15" wheels will fit over your brake calipers, but to save time money and hassle, look for a set of 16" steelies (or any 16", stock focus rims can be had for cheap usually) for your winter tires.

I got a set of stock 16" wheels from a totalled ZX3. I currently have all seasons on them, and they work out very well. Hopefully plan to get some blizzaks next year.

Also hello fellow Wisconsinite :D
