I have a 2010 Escape Limited 3.0 liter automatic transmission,  AWD

Owner manual lists tire sizes as  :

-P235/70R16

-P225/65R17 (mine)

I have a chance to buy new snow tires and rims that were from a 2008 Escape :

-235/75R15 

Will these 15"  rims fit my vehicle ?

The bolt pattern should be the same (5x114.3mm or 5x4.5") and the tire will cause about a 1.5% error with your speedo due to the difference in circumference. Technically it will also affect your ABS thresholds but minimally. I had a similar debate as I have the same tire/rims as you and had a tire/rim set with the 16" but in my case I found another deal on 17" rims and just waiting til I see a good deal on tires.
