Help with tire stretch size

Hello All, first post and could use a little guidance. Posting here for eye traffic.

Purchased a 2012 Elantra GLS with 100K mi but drives like new. I have been trying to freshen it up a bit. JDM yellowed the fogs, LED internal lighting, bought some Power Stop drilled-slotted rotors and now onto to wheels. Grabbed some XXR 527s in chromium black in 17x8.25. I thought these would work but my research is telling me this will be an aggressive fitment. Offset is +35, which I think will be about 5-6mm of poke from the fender. I am not dropped (yet), but will go ARK or H&R springs. I am OEM suspension setup, no camber.

Now what tire to avoid rub when turning radius? Same size has to avoid rub when dropped eventually.

225/45/17 (might look like a 4x4?)
215/50/17 stretched (50 for lil more sidewall?)
215/45/17 stretched (45 thin sidewall, more harsh ride?)

Anyone have any suggestions?

...and for the record I have been searching as Cokedrinker's setup is the closest I could find but runs 18x8.75 width.

Shooting for this look

I'm planning on running mine 18x8.5 et35 or so my guy was telling me it will work with my current coilovers being lowered at about 1.25" drop. Mind you I might have to do a small fender pulling but that was all in the build plan.
If you're worried about your tires rubbing you can try finding some low profile tires worst case scenario you might just have to do a slight fender pull.

You can always try this website to give you a better idea.

^Thanks for the link. I have been using RimsnTires Wheel Comparer, similar webtool. Yeah 99K mi on 2012 when I bought it and I drive 100mi daily round trip so I am up to 106Kmi. Picked it up for $4200, and changed fluids, plugs, filters - everything. Drives like a dream and I have gotten 43.2mpg - averaging 37mpg. Keep it up and it should keep on running.

I also was factoring a fender roll, but if I lean out the tire I might get away with it.

Honestly with your setup it should fit. How low are you?

Edit: Nevermind you havent lowered yours yet. Try taking to a local tire shop and ask them to test fit one for you. Pretty sure they have some worn out tires for you to test out. 215/45/17 should work with you since the OEM setup for the Elantra Sport and Coupe. I seen people run 18s and even 19s.

Overall best bet is to actually try your setup and see how it goes first.

BTW that's not coke drinkers car...anyways the picture you posted is someone else. His specs are 18x8.75 with 215/40/18 if I can recall correctly. A 215 width tire won't be much of a stretch and 45 series tires won't be too harsh of a ride IMO. Good luck!
