Wheel dilemma

Looking to add a beefy look to the ol girl next season
going thinking of going with bigger rubber rather than try to do any coil overs.
any one know what the biggest size tire I can put on without any rubbing (including mud flaps) ?

You're saying stock rim size? and by bigger, are you saying wider or taller (e.g. more MM [215mm up to 235mm] or more aspect ratio [50 series to 55 or 60 series tires]?

or just you want to know what max width wheel/offset/tire on stock 2009 2.5i?

Yeah I'm looking for the max wheel offset that will fit in the stock fender, hoping to get a 235/ 60 r15 jut not sure if the rubber will run if I get an aggressive tread

Completely stock, with the right offset and right alignment, you can get 235.

Totally modded, you can get to a 255.

I've posted a ****ton of info about this. I found the limit to be just under 275 and I had to do some little flares to cover the gap.
