Look on your driver door it should show the recommended sizes for your car

You'll likely be looking for wider rims to go with wider tyres - probably not much choice in wider tyres for your current rims (assuming they are 8x18).

And to use wider rears ususally requires staggered rims - larger rims on the rear than on the front, e.g. 9.5" front and 10.5" rears.
