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
Yes,

You could do 275/35/18 DW's on 18x10" fronts and 295/35/18 DW's on 18x10.5" rears. That will fit. That size combo has been done
