I don't think the brake calipers are any different between the V6 and V6 sport so the 16 inch wheel should work. Are you sure the wheel had the right backspacing?

I have a 2000 LS, and I've had the Dunlop Graspic studless snow tires on it for the last 8 winters. They're the 215/60/16s. I'm satisfied with them.
In my situation, due to some circumstances that aren't relevent, I have my snows on my OE wheels, and the previously mentioned Falkens on a set of aftermarket wheels. I don't know if they're still available, because I haven't seen them advertised in quite a while, but the wheels are "MIM Venezia" wheels. I bought them from Discount Tire Direct. They look good, and clear the brake calipers.
Just a caution...For the best winter performance, you want to have as narrow a tire as possible, to cut through the snow, as a wide tire tends to just plow along.
