7" will be to wide and you'll start getting rub issues, tiger recomend 6.5j x 15 et39(ish). your wheels will be roughly 1" wider than stated as the 7" is measured between the inner part of the wheel.

I've got 7" on mine I did have to trim 5mm off the osr wheel arch though. You want around et35 to et 38 offset.

Wheel diameter is usually determined by the brakes, what you got?
