The stock offset is +53mm, so as close to that as you can get is better. +51mm will work, and I'm pretty sure people run +48mm with no rubbing...but +45mm will rub.

You want a higher offset...at least around +50. I run 17x7 / 215/45 tires with no rubbing issues on a full tank with 4 others in the car...

Some 225 tires will rub with just about ANY wheel on a lowered wagon. Of the ones that seem to be having no issues with 225's on a wagon, they have found 50mm offset wheels

I run 17x7.5 at 48mm offset with 215/45-17 tires - NO RUBBING

Finding wheels with the right lug pattern and offset does limit your choices, but there are still plenty of nice looking wheels out there that will still fit properly.
