if i may suggest if its just to protect them during the winter why not use plastidip on the original alloys it will save you a fortune easy to spray on the alloy and easy to remove you tube search plastidip and youll see what i mean

I have a Ford Focus MK 3 1.0 Eco Boost engine equipment trend sport. Standard car comes with 215/55/16 tires with aluminum rims 6,5J/5*108. My dealer offered me to use winter tires 205/60/16 with the same alloy wheels.
I have a question: is it possible using of 15 inch rims with new tires? In some Russian forums there are some posts that this is possible, but I prefer to ask here. If it is possible can you tell me the parameters of the 15-inch wheels and a particular offset.
Thanks in advance

It turned out that no rims I tried could fit to my wheels, even ET 52,5. More precisely, they can fit, but they can't turn. Obviously, it's about breaks size, so arches touch the rim. Is it possible to use 15" on my car at all? If not steel, then some alloy?

I would wager that the 15" wheels were only fitted to cars that have 288mm front discs (like the 1.4 petrol, and maybe the lower-spec 1.6) while cars with the 300mm front discs need the 16" wheels.
The 1.8 TDCi has the larger 300mm brakes because of the extra weight (not because of extra power). The diesel also has rear discs while the 1.6 petrol has rear drums, for the same reason.
