Stock 14-15" with hubs. I would put my 6 spokes on there since they are my winter tires.
Just debating if its worth it to throw a new head on there or something. For under $1k it could be a good beater. It's a bottom end car too :(

|lildisco||If it has some 16's you could swap the wheels over. Stock 15's won't fit, but if you don't have the know-how to do an engine swap, i wouldn't bother. You may be able to find another spi motor, but your eventually going to have the same problem.|

|lildisco||Is it the spi and the valve seat?|

Never heard of a spring breaking with anything other than extreme abuse. Not common by any means.

Worth buying a focus: valve spring broke.
Well a buddy has a 4 door 02-03 which I guess has the common problem with the valve spring breaking. Is it worth buying? He was gonna sell it for $400. New tires and such and in excellent condition.
Gonna go check it out in a bit. Want something else for a beater besides the SVT.
