I'm not sure on the widest wheels. Recommended tyre size for 16 inch wheels 205/50 VR (or ZR) and for 17 inch wheels, the recommended tyre size is 205/45 ZR 17.

Need more info,is the car going to be lowered or not, guess at 8.5in, mines lowered 40mm with 7.5x18`s et45,reckon if it werent lowered though 8.5`s would go on-wouldnt look right to me but think they`d go on at a push though wheel diameter based on the width(space available)and caliper clearance are gonna be other things to watch based on the style of wheel.
Best sealant used to date- Fourstar ultimate paint protection *Now discontinued* Rebranded as sonus SFX4 paint sealant-Try some ya wont be dissapointed.
