Will 195/60R16 tires fit on stock '12 Focus SEL wheels? The stock Conties are 215/55R16, but I wanted go with a narrower option for the winter. The difference in circumference would be -0.4%, so that's not a problem, but wouldn't 195s be too narrow (-9.3%) for the rims?

195 vs 215 is a small difference. They should be fine.

The tire in question (Mich Xi3) is said to fit 16x5.5-7" wheels. Is the OEM 16" aluminium wheel seven-inch wide?
Would the tire need to be 'blasted' to fit the rim? If yes, is that safe for the tire?
Also, would there be any loss of performance (traction) while using 195/60 tires on 16x7 wheels?
