Question Winter Wheels?

I was using 15" wheels from a 1995 V-6 with 205x65 15R all season radials on the front and studded snows on the back with my 2004 GT; I recently traded that 04 GT for a 2006 V-6 with the Pony Package. I have two sets of four wheels from 1995 V-6, one set black steel and one set Aluminum three spoke. Both sets worked fine on My 04 GT, but I already know they will not fit the 2006 V-6, I tried. My question now is, does anyone know the exact numbers for the 06 bolt pattern? And better yet are there any older Ford wheels with this same bolt pattern. I am hoping Ford "re-used" an older bolt pattern, so I maybe could find used wheels to use for winter wheels.

For anyone interested in 04 and earlier, I used the above mentioned 15 inch wheels with My 2002 Gt and then My 2004 Gt. The 205x65 15R tires have an outer diameter identical to the standard 245x45 17R tires. A perfect fit as it was, I was able to utilize the Trak-Lok axle and studded snows to make the car move very well on snow and ice! Also by just lifting on the throttle those studded snows would dig in and straighten the car when starting to slide a bit. All feed back welcome!

For your question... the bolt pattern shouldnt be any different, its just the offset thats different on the 05+
