Holden states in its hand book for VZ Commodore:

P205/65 R15 95H for 15inch wheels, P215/60 R16 95V for 16inch wheels; P225/50 R17 94V for 17inch wheels on Calais; P235/45 R17 93V for 17inch wheels on SV6, SV8; P235/40 R18 91W for 18inch on SS

So: your 225x65x15 tyre request is 20mm wider & 13mm taller (ride height) which is no problem as far as clearance is concerned, there will be a difference with "actual speed" reading with the speedo.

2006 SS Thunder Ute 6ltr V8 manual
[QUOTE=VZ Commodore:

P235/40 R18 91W for 18inch on SS


If I have 18" wheels and want the oppisite of low profile, what is the most rubber size I can run on a VZ SS thunder ute? not lowered

can I run 285/55-18? for that "old school look and extra rubber to soften the ride?

No the profile will be to tall, most states only allow 15mm over or under standard tyre fitment...
use a tyre calculator to work out what profile will work..use the tyre size difference comparison section here

Im running 225 60 15 on 7 inch wide ute steel wheels. This is the tyre combo that the police used.
