I am assuming you have a cvt. Big/heavy rims/tires are a very very bad idea. The more unsprung weight that the cvt has to turn, the shorter the life of the transmission. IF you increase the over-all diameter of the wheel you are also messing with the wheel speed which can cause the cvt to do some very very strange things.

okay, with a six speed you will be changing the wheel speed sensor readings which can change the way the ABS works. BE CAREFUL.

turn the wheel to lock one way, then lock the other way. measure the space between the tire and fender liner both times.
Measure the space between the tire and the strut/spring. subtract 1/2" That will give you your maximum increase for width.

take the smaller of the first measurements from lock to lock, subtract half of the second measurement for width. That will give you a safe diameter increase you can fit.

Then using a wheel/tire calculator, play with available rim/tire options.
