CBR How wide front tire?

With your full CBR front end with Rack n Pinion steering, how wide of a front tire will fit under a first gen Nova without rubbing, using 98-02 LS brakes (assuming a 17" wheel, 7 or 8" wide, whatever BS needed)?

7 wide 4.75 fits well,8 5.25 fits if the spring covers are removed.225 wide fits real well with car low.could probably fit a 235/245 if some concessions were made. Overall diameter needs to be 24.5 ish.

Thank you for the prompt reply- I had seen that 235/40/18's were on the front of the '63 Nova at the 2015 SC Challenge and wanted to confirm that was about the biggest size that would fit.

Our rear end was narrowed so it would not apply to a stock rear end and the appropriate back space...
