Biggest Tyres on EA Rims?

Guys just wondering what the biggest size tyre you can fit on a standard EA Falcon GL rim is....

I currently have 185 cheese cutters on there but am looking at 215's......will they fit no problems?
What about 225's?

215s were standard issue on Police and Taxi pack EAs. I don't know if 225s will fit, I suppose you could find out from a tyre dealer or something?
