Largest tire size on stock SXT 17" rims

I did some searching on the forum and haven't found the answer, but please forgive me if this has already been discussed. I have an '07 SXT and will be needing new tires soon. What is the largest tire I can fit on the standard 17" rim. I believe it currently is a 215, but can I go up to a 225 or 235? What do I sacrifice in doing that, and will doing this void any part of my warranty?

Either size will fit but may effect spedo accuracy some and definatly will not effect the warranty
