Default 18x7.5 Enkei's. New tire size??

Hey guys. So, I have a set of Enkei GW8's (see avatar) with stock tires and I want to upgrade. I have seen people running 235x40's on 7.5 rims but I am not sure that is safe because when I looked up the tire specs it has a measured rim width of 8.5. Would a more aggressive tire in the stock size be a better match or should I get 225x45? I was thinking of running Star Specs. Thanks

Get 225/40-18

That's the size tire on on the Gen2 MS3's and they have 7.5" wheels.

You can run up to 245/35-18s safely on a 7.5" rim. I've done it multiple times and have had zero issue. Plus I like the look of more tire, not the stretch look.
