To get rid of that space in the wheel wells your most likely going to have to lower the vehicle in one way or another. Throwing in super large tires will mess your speedometer up terribly.

When you use the +1, +2, +3 calculations to go for bigger rims, the correct way is to lesson the sidewall height so you keep the same overall circumference. It still leaves the humongous gap in the wheels wells.

Cheapest way to go is with a nice set of lowering springs. The rears you could probably do yourself. Fronts you might need some help.

As far as other cars, the ones off the top of my head are the Dodge Neon's and some VW's. Your looking for the bolt pattern of 5X100.

Crewzin speaks truth.
Also keep in mind that all else being equal (which it really never is ) Larger tires will cost more and often have softer compound rubber for better handling that wears faster...

And all PTs can run the 15" steel wheels as long as they have there oem brakes. Been a ton of controversy on this over the years.
