i think the largest wheel i see most of the time is 17x7 with a decent offset and either 205/40 or 215/40 profile tyres. anything wider than that, or a different profile tyre to that, you will need to roll the guards.

pretty sure you can go 17x7.5 with the right offset and tyres that have a little stretch.

17x8 +32 is a good size on 215/45 or 225/40

I'm having slight issue on 17x8 +25 on 215/45

On a TRX, maximum width you can legally run is 1" wider than standard, so 7" is the maximum width you can legally run.

On any other U12, because they came with 5.5" width wheels from the factory, technically you can only run 6.5" as the maximum, but you can be sneaky and grab a tyre placard sticker from a TRX and stick it in the glove box, replacing the original one.
