Default Suggestions?? replacing wheels on 2001

Have a 2001, 15" stock chrome wheels do not hold up well in Canada, with all the salt. Always adding air, [corroded rims leaks]. Want to replace rims and/or have a spare set with winter tires mounted. Steel is fine. Since this is an older PT, I dont want to invest alot. I can get rims at junkyard for $15 each. Problem is, just what cars [common ones] have wheels that would interchange with the PT ??
Everywhere i read, there is nothing that 'officially' fits. Anyone have any knowlege of what rims fit the cruiser [bolt-pattern/caliper clearance, all that]?
Greatly appreciate if someone knows; hope i can help you out as well.

To clarify my above question, do any common cars [Chrysler or otherwise] have stock rims that would [or might] fit my 2001 15" PT ?
I read the wheel and tire bible, but i dont want to go through all that measuring if i dont have to, beyond the 5 bolt X 100 specs. Easier if someone here knows what wheels are interchangeable. I can resize the tires if the rims will work.

Thanks very much.

If your up to re-sizing the tires if the rims will fit, these are the cars that I've read about on forums and eBay that will fit the PT Cruiser bolt pattern and offset.

Chrysler: Neon, Sebring
Scion: TC
Honda: Civic, Celica
VW: Jetta

You can always just look for wheels from any PT Base model (steel wheels and hubcaps).
