Default Need tire size advice please

I am running a set of old school Crimson Limix Linea RSK BE5 forged 18" x 7.5" +52 offset on my 2004 wagon. The Kumho ASX 225/40/18 tires are in need of replacement and look a little narrow for the wheels. My question is: what size tire should I go with? size? width? I am rolled flat in the rear from a previous set of wheels I used to run so a little wider shouldn't hurt. Comments and advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have 18x7.5's with a 46 offset running 225's. Barely rubbed in the rear before rolling my fenders. I'd say you could probably bump up to 235's.

You may also want to post your suspension setup as well, that may help determine a size.
