15" snow rims for a 2013 Focus?

I am new to this site and I did search but couldnt find the answer. I have 8 snows for my 2003 Focus, 195/60R15's and rims, but the new Focus has 16" 5 bolt rims. Are there any older Ford 15" rims that I could use on my new car? Picking the new one up in a few days and its already snowing around here, since I have the snow tires aleady I would prefer not to buy new tires. Thanks

Seventh gen Mercury Cougar wheels work.

Also, realize that with the tires you currently have, the speedo will be off a bit.

Those are 15" rims? What size tires?
Would 96 or 97 T-bird rims work? I may be able to get a set cheap

Cougar and Thunderbird are basically the same vehicle for those years. In fact, I bet some of the wheel options are identical.

Those are 195/65-15 tires, with 15" Cougar wheels.

Is your speedo off? Do you just deal with the tire pressure light while you have the rims on it for winter?

It's supposed to read slightly slower, but I don't notice...I think it's technically less then a 1mph difference.

I just deal with the light. Sometimes it flashes for a while then goes solid, other times it just stays solid. Hell, some times the car doesn't even realize it until 20 miles later...but it doesn't really bother me.
