Default Winter Tire choices ?

I have a new 2010 PT Cruiser Classic with 16 inch factory wheels. It is probably in my best interest to get a set of winter tires on their own rims.
Tire Rack is suggesting I go with Dunlop 3D winter tires on 15 inch wheels.
I'm bothered by this choice because the Tire Rack web site doesn't seem to be set up properly for the 2010 model year so I'm not sure if they are suggesting I use 15 inch wheels that will clear 4 wheel disk brakes. Comments and suggestions appreciated. Steve

It is not an issue. Only the front calipers on turbos are an issue. - The disks and calipers on turbo w-wheel disks are bigger.
