Hi there,

The 17x9" ET30 square setup is going to be the widest you can go before needing to make modifications to the vehicle. Here is some additional info regarding that specific fitment:

Front & Rear: 17x9" ET30 with 245/40-17 tires
-Direct fit.
-Available in ARC-8, ARC-8R, and EC-7R designs.
-255/40-17 can be used but may require front negative camber.
-5mm front spacers may be required with certain aftermarket suspensions,
see below.

With 245/40-17 tires at all four corners, this setup will provide a meaty tire fitment both front and rear. With stock suspension, it will be a complete direct fit. However, if you have or plan to install coilovers known to reduce inner suspension clearance (KW, ST, etc) a 5mm front spacer will be required to clear those components.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!
