I currently have 245 40 18 285 35 18 and I like it, but I want more in the front (happy with the rear, but wouldn't mind bigger)

When I said "265 35" for the Front I had meant to write "275 35" in the front with 295 35 (or 295 30?) in the rear.

My current set up (Continental ExtremeContact DWs) have about 4500 miles and 2 track days. They're fine.
By the end of August, there will be 5 (maybe 6?) more track days on them, and another 3k miles.
My desire is for them to last until the end of August, but realistically thinking early August. Thus I need to find a replacement set of tires and was thinking of going wider which would require new rims.
I'm using OEM 18s right now.

Thank you for your assistance
