difficulty finding extra set of rims/snow tires

Looking for some relatively inexpensive 15" or 16" wheels for my '98 Lude to get me through the winter. I bought it with 17" alloys.

These tires might work if I want to save a few bucks, but they don't come with rims: 4 snow tires on rims

4 Gislaved nord frost II snow tires like new still has some nubs size 185/65 r15 for $200 OBO.

My biggest problem is that I can't find steel/stock rims around here. On the net, I see them going for $200 a pop.

Can anyone tell me if I can use rims off a similar car, like a Civic. In the past, with other cars, I've been able to go to a salvage yard for stock rims. No one around here has anything for a Prelude, though.

I found 4 Michelin X-ice 205-60R15 tires mounted and balanced on rims that fit a 2006 Civic, used one season for only $300. Will these work? Same 5 lug pattern.

Thanks. I've been browsing previous winter tire threads and found them informative.

Thanks, Crash. Done. Those wheels off the Civic, 4 for $300 only used one season, seem like a good buy. Otherwise it's either:

1) Scour the boneyard for some cheap 5x114 rims, either 15" or 16", and throw some new or used snow tires on.

2) Buy some new rims, looks like I can get 4 steel 15" or 16" for $250-300 off of discounttiredirect(I like the black ones, for winter)... and then I still need tires.

3) Continue to look for a full set of snow tires with rims off a comparable vehicle on craigslist, etc.

Thanks, again.

Thanks, man. 15" or 16" in black for $55/$65 apiece is the best new rim price I've seen. They seem to have a limited selection of snow tires, though.
