I think I can go anywhere from 6.5" wide to 7.5" inches right?

Or is there one that would be better than the other?

Do you think this is a good deal for $250?

Most tire companies recommend 5.5 to 7" wheel width for a 195/60-15 snow tire (wheel width recommendations are available on Tirerack's web site for each tire (size) they carry). 6" wide rims would be more or less ideal for that tire size. FWIW, stock Focus 15" alloys are 6 inches wide.

As for the craiglist tires, they look like a lot of the fine sipping is worn off. That's the most important part of a snow tire. They probably spent a good deal of the "claimed" 4000 miles of bare warm pavement for that to happen so soon. 250.00 maybe a little high for a no name snow tire so I think I'd offer less if you're really interested in them.
