Default Staggered wheel setup options?

Hey all, so I'm gonna be looking at getting a staggered wheel setup for my car. Right now Im running P215/65 R16' s front and rears.

I'm wondering what the biggest tire/ rim size I can put on my car without having to modify anything? I'll probably put 17" rims on, maybe 18's.

If you guys have any suggestions or tips for me, everything is appreciated !!

Thanks !!

275 tires on 9 inch rear wheels would be ideal IMO.

With 315's you will have to roll the fender lip and beat the **** out of the inner fender.

I have 99 with 18 x 9 with a 3 inch deep set front and rear with 245-40-18 and they fit very nicely but I need to lower the car a little , to much fender gap for me.
