225 on 7.5 is perfect fit. I have Michellin Pilot Sport 225 on Volk TE-37 18x7.5

Default It will cause the car to drift more easily

but it will make the ride a bit smoother.
I have 235x35R19 on my 9" wide wheels and it works nice for everyday driving but not for track

Default I was thinking that myself

At least it is for 17" rims'
and going to 8.5" rims to me does not give any protection to the rims.
