Are you sure about the stock tire size? It doesn't sound right. If it is, you're right, Tire Rack doesn't have anything that size. You can use the 185/60 but you speedometer may be off by a MPH or two. Not a big deal in the winter. I saw 195/55 R15 available but that will have a similar effect on your speedo. You also might be able to get away with only buying snow tires for the front. You can always try them first then get the backs if you need more traction. On a front wheel drive car it's not as important to have all four. Hope this helps.
