As well you should.

You can NOT use a 15 inch tire on a 16 inch rim.

Unless there was a "typo" in your post, it is definitely a no-go.
The last number must be the same.

Like mentioned above you can't put a 15 inch tire on a 16 inch rim.

If you plan on keeping your Elantra for a number of years, you might want to invest in a set of 15 inch steel wheels with winter tires. That way you save a lot since 15 inch wheels and tires can be had for cheap when new or used and it becomes much more easier to swap them on when winter comes.
