Default Wagons: Who's got the widest?

Wagon owners please chime in. I'm curious to see who's got the most aggressive wheel/tire set up.? Please list your wheel size, width, and offset, as well as your tire size. Suspension and camber specs will help too.

Has anybody successfully run anything wider than a 8.5" rim? What offset?
Thanks in advance!

I autocross on 235/40/17 Nitto NT01's on Rota Actions, 3mm spacers in the rear to keep from rubbing the trailing arms and rolled fenders because my old 215/50/17 street tires rubbed Other pertinent info: '02 wagon with Eibach springs, KYB AGX's, and Hotchkis swaybars.

How wide are your rims, and what's the offset?

Rims are Rota Actions, 17x7 1/2, just a tiny bit narrow for the 235's. Offset is 48mm. I had a rub with these on the inside rear, both sides, where the tire was just touching the trailing arm. With Hankook RS2's in the same size, I had no rub, the Nitto's are just a bit bigger I guess. I bought some 3mm spacers for the back and no more rub. With the Nitto's the car is a little more tail happy so the spacers help with that also.

Alignment specs as I remember them, I don't have my notes handy, -3.5 front camber, 3/16" toe out in front, -0.8 rear camber, 0 rear toe for autocross. Rear stays the same for street use but the front is -2.5 camber and 0 toe. Did you know that adding negative camber adds toe out? Adding that 1 degree gives me almost 3/4" of toe out if I don't adjust it back in!
