installing 225's

I have 215/45/17 installed currently and was wondering what it will take to get 225's to clear in the tire well. I had some 225's test fitted and they seemed to rub quite a bit. How does everyone else run 225's?

I'd just run the 215's. the 225's fit better on the '08+ cars.

Depends on the offset of the wheel. I had some 225 on a 17x7. 49et wheel (oem SVT) and it was fine, minor rubbing
