James, 205mm wide rubber on a 7" wide rim w/a 45mm offset is a max size,
that you can put on your car, before you start rubbing the rear fenders.

My set up is 205/55/16, on 16"x7.5" rim with a 38mm offset and OEM spec
rear Camber. I was rubbing the rear fenders up until I flared them right
before the last years's Lime Rock event.
