Widest tires on E-36 M3 alloys that will fit on E-30

Wassup, finally got all my parts to do my M52 conversion. Thanks empowered for the help. Currently i'm installing the E-36 M3 suspension and brakes on my E-30. In the front i was told that the E-36 strut assembly bolts in. Not sure if i use the E-36 lower control arms, or the E-30 lower control arms. In the rear i was told i could run the Z3 arms and spindles, with the E-36 M3 rotors and calipers. Let me know if someone sees a problem with this set-up. My question is on the E-36 M3 factory alloys 17 / 7.5 fronts, and 17 / 8.5 rears, what is the widest tire combination that will fit on my E-30 front and rear?

you would probably be ok with the m3 specs, but you might have a problem with the rear rubbing. I'd play it safe with 235's all around. Then you could rotate the tires.
