You can make about anything "fit." However, is a wheel/ tire combination that large safe? Hell NO! As a rule of thumb, you should only go two inches larger in rim size than what the manufacturer specified. Other words, if it came with 14" inch wheels, the largest you should SAFELY go is 16". The reason being, when you upsize two inches using the correct formula for tire computations, the diameter of the wheel will remain very close to the same. Speedomer and odometer remain accurate. There will be idiots tell you that you can safely go larger than two inches. Disregard their advise for several reasons. One, you'll create clearance issues and reduce your turning radius. Two, you'll go up considerably in weight on all four corners of the car. This additional weight will increase your stopping distance. Should you do so anyway, you'll need a brake upgrade and that's EXPENSIVE! Should you "rear end" another vehicle and do not have the modification, DEPENDING UPON THE COP, he can write additional tickets for unsafe alterations.

Not to mention if you go so big you have 'rubber band' tires, you'll end up replacing wheels every time you hit a big enough crack in the road. That gets expensive FAST.

Oh! Forgot to tell you. When you increase the wheel and tire size, it requires additional horsepower to move the vehicle. Expect the accleration and fuel MPG to decrease. Unless you've increased horsepower to offset the addition in weight, that is a normal side effect.
