Stock Sport suspension (for now)
Your car in it's current state (stock suspension) can easily fit our 17x9" ET42 ARC-8 wheels with 245/40/17 tires. This would be a direct fit and would not need wheel spacers, fender rolling, or any other modifications. Down the road if you were looking for an even wider tire you could go with a 255/40/17. Depending on the type of tire that you end up using a wheel spacer may be needed in the front and a little bit more negative camber achieved through pulling the alignment pins on your stock strut mounts.

17x9" ET42 ARC-8 in Hyper Silver with 255/40/17 Nitto NT05 tires and a small 5mm front wheel spacer.

17x9" ET42 ARC-8 in Hyper Black with 245/40/17 Dunlop Star Spec tires.
