Hatch or Hardtop?

With stock strut-type suspension, an 8.5 +40 will fit on the front and still be inside the guards, but will rub on the struts on the rear. A +30 with a fair bit of camber is doable if it's more looks over handling that you're going for.

8" +30 is a relatively sensible size/width, but you'll have to roll and flare the rear a little (on a Hardtop, at least)
