Fattest tire for my svt 17"

Hello everyone... Whats the fattest tire anyone has put on their svt 5 17's? I hate the oem size, they look thin and weak. My brother put 225-50-16 on his and they look sick! They look like drag/auto x radials, he needed spacers though but thats what in looking for. Any input please?

I remember someone with an orange 05 ZX3 either on here or on the jet did 235/40/17's on the stockers. Yes they were pinched but fit OK due to having coils and some light rolling IIRC. That said, youll probably want to think about less tire/ a wider wheel as thats pretty pinched
