if you've only got 7J rims widest i'd personally go is 225
just go look at the v8 supercars running 285 on 9J rims
if u go to wide your tyre sidewalls flex to much and your rims floats on the tyres and the car feels like it's not connected to the road

you can go wider than 225... ive got 225's on a 6J handles fine... better than when i had 215's actually.
dont know about a 7J though, ask the guys at the tyre shop they would know their ****... they do it everyday.

An 8-8.5 inch rim is recommended for a 255 width tyre.
I'd only go to around 235 on a 7 inch rim.
