I was looking at 949 racing's 6UL wheels from blackwatch racing website but found out that it was sold out.

Is anyone out there sporting 225/45R15 front tires? What wheels are you using?

I run 205/50-15s with 15x8 RPF1s spaced out to an effective 20mm offset to clear the brake calipers. If you must run a 225/45-15, you'll probably need to be closer to the 25mm offset range to get adequate clearance. Something like a 15x8 TE37 will work very well. I would at least keep the wheel width 8 inches wide, 7.5 inches at the bare minimum.

My Elise has Rays CE28's with 225/45/15 up front and 245/45/16 in the rear. I believe they are 15X7 +28 and 16X8 +35 (they came on the car I bought).
