Why would you want to especially if you're not lowered? However the 8.5" wide wheel isnt going to fly do those wheels in paticular no not without expecting some rubbing.

I bet you could go with the 18" wheels. The 8.5" may rub though, if you lower the car at all.

Not sure if you keep it stock height though.

I'll do the leg work:

Yo Mamma said:
215/35/18 - Larger Contact Patch, Small Profile means Less Protection for Wheels
215/40/18 - Larger Contact Patch, Overall Diameter is Larger
225/35/18 - Even Larger Contact Patch, Recommended tire size for 18x7.5" with at least a +48mm offset
225/40/18 - Even Larger Contact Patch, Overall Diameter is Larger, Not Recommended if car is Lowered

I honestly don't know the width of my rims, but i have 18's wrapped in 225/40/18 Nitto Neo Gens, and they rub when cornering. Stock suspension btw.
