Tires question

Hey, I have a question (obviously) I have a Dodge Neon that has 3 different tires on it that are probably all pretty old but still have tread on them, One of them is was a free tire that I got from this guy because of when I got kid napped and the guy wrecked my car and messed up the whole right side of the car, that free tire I got replacing the broken one leaks air and frequently goes to about 20psi and the others have a max of 35psi.
Now here is the problem: I have some BRAND NEW tires that I payed over $400 for, for my old car (88 Fiero) these tires have a max of 41psi and are perfect but they are for 15 inch rims and not the 14s I have on the Neon, So if I traded them out I would have to keep the Fieros rims with the tires which I think would be heavier because the tire is thicker and just overall bigger.
Should I switch to the Fiero tires and keep them at 41psi or should I keep the probably lighter,thinner crap tires and just keep paying to put air in them? Sorry for the long question....
