2003 996 Cab proper tire size for wheel

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Model: 996 ; Year: 2003; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 9500;

When I purchased my 996 Cab with 17" wheels I bargained to have the wheels replaced with 18" 5-spoke Carrera wheels that were new on my Boxster I traded in. The wheels are 9/52(rear) and 7.5/50(front) which I understand is the version of Carrera wheels for the Boxster and Boxsters. I have Michelin Pilot Sport tires on the wheels, i.e., 265/35 and 225/40 respectively. I need to replace the rear tires. Is this the maximun width of tire that I can put on these wheels without going to a wider wheel?
