People stick much wider tyres than 215 on 850s over here. It sucks but it works.

The fenders are different. Not sure about the liners.
Yes, you could definitely get wider tires under there but it would likely require spacers and fender rolling right? I'm just saying that stock, wider than 215 with no modifications will (very likely) rub on an 850. Even my 205/55 snow tires on Perfos rub on my 850's liners :?

You adapt quite quickly and learn how far you can turn. I had 245s on my S80 with limiters for 205s on for a brief period. They rubbed like mad if you actually tried a full turn.
