What to do for winter. I have 3 tires from my old car

EDIT: Only considering snows, not all seasons.

I have 3 tires from my old (and first car) 2001 chrysler neon.

The tires are General something or other 205/55/R16 and only one winter old.

Tirerack recommends a 205/55/R16 combo but I'm worried that it will look tiny on the car and that the speedo will read incorrectly.

So 2 questions:

1.) What 16 inch rims can I get that look decent and will clear the brakes on the ZHP?

2.) Is there a better alternative, perhaps with 17 inch rims? If so, would it economical? Currently I need 1 tire and 4 rims.

Bonus Q'n) Can I get 18" tires???

I'm off to google before you can say search it!! :-D

Overall, what should I do?

EDIT 2: Didn't know there were 18" snows but here they are:

16's wont fit. There are a few special 16's that will clear zhp brakes, most wont.

get some cheap 17's or 18's, and get winters for them. 18 inch winters are pricey, but available.

I think Tirerack still sells 16s new that clear 330 brakes. I had a set of 16" M Contours that cleared them (and E36 M3 brakes). Search for winter packages at their site, they may still have an ASA wheel.
