Looks kind of like SC flares on that 914. Yes, it can be done... No idea what size tires will fit decently under those particular fenders. Measure what you have, and see how much more room you need than what you have. At a guess, the 225s on 7s will be about 2.5"-3" narrower than what you have, though it depends a whole lot on the exact tires in each case. Figure half of that distance to each side of the rim (unless you know the differences in offset or backspacing), and then figure something like 1/4" extra room on each side for tire deflection and such. And you may need more than that 1/4"...

You're almost completely certain to get 205s on 7s under the rear fenders. They don't work on most 914s with stock rear fenders, unless some "heroics" are done, but those fenders look wider than stock. Maybe 215s will work, maybe even 225s. But it would be a very very good idea to measure first, before you buy the wheels and tires....
