FWW, I tend to use this website for quick comparisons ... http://www.tyresave.co.uk/tyresize.html

It helps with the rolling diameter comparisons
My new tyres are 215/65R16 so rolling diameter just .1" less then yours, Dave, and Width is 20mm less - though offset (ET) will be a factor for rubbing ( not noticed rubbing on my front wheels, but only just fitted)

I'm running 215 75 15, standard height with no rubbing issues. The largest I know people have fitted is 225 75 16 but thats with trimming bumpers and flattening the arch.
There is a few threads on here with loads of info. One is called; biggest tyres not wheels, and the other; off road inspired vans.

Personally I'm looking to go wide but not too low profile.
So 235/60/15 all round should fit the bill for me I think.

Guy round the corner from me is running 265/55 on the rear...!!!!
Only about 10mm gap..... Must be the absolute max I guess.
