new rims and tire combo help

rims are 17x7.5 42mm offset.. tirerack recommends 225/45-17 but I have a feeling I can go safely wider in the rear ... what do you recommend?

car: e36 318i

Thanks!

You don't really want anything wider than a 225/45/17 on a 7.5" rim anyways. 235/40/17 is the absolute max, that's what the '95 M3 came with stock (and it's still beyond the recommended rim width range for all tires).
