Yup. Snag some 15x6" steel wheels. Put on 195/60/15 tires or do what I did with my cobalt and put on 195/65/15 tires. They were cheaper by about $50 to go with the 195/65/15 and fill the wheel wells extremely well

For winter you generally want thinner tires, as that'll help them cut through the snow and find traction. I've got 185/65/15 Michelin x-ice xi3s and they did me well last winter.
