Will tires fit

I run 215/35ZR19's on my 02 Focus wagon now and was wondering if I could run 225/35ZR19's on the rear. The wheels have a 6" back space I think. The wheels are 19x7. Thanks for your help.

normally that width isnt too much of a problem. unless you have low offset (low backspacing) which you dont 6" is good.

my intuition is that you will be fine, but

you would have a larger diameter as well as width.
plug it into a tire size calculate to find the diameter. compare that value to tires that others have run on this site. i dont know of anyone else on 19" wheels so a direct comparison is tricky.
