Indeed!

I mounted 265/35 Falken Azenis RT-615K tires on my new 10" ET25 EC-7 wheels and I have at least a couple mm of clearance through the whole steering range!

I should note that I only performed this test while the car was parked. Tomorrow, I will try driving a few feet between each step of the steering wheel.

Thank you! I'm really happy to be on 265/35R18's in front. Ride quality is improved over stock (thanks to 7mm extra sidewall height) but still feels planted and provides good road feel.

And with the risk of bending a wheel greatly reduced, I can now proceed with my suspension upgrades.
