Those are much thinner than stock (diameter).

Stock sizes are really good, it will be a lot stickier than stock with either of those tires in stock sizes assuming you can get them. If you're not going with wider rims, consider keeping 245/265.

Go here to find out what the impact of changing size is on your rolling diameter: http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

For 18" with larger rim width, 275/35 front, 285/35 or 295/35 rear

You will either need to compromise your current setup or compromise your later setup. Wheel width is very important to determining proper tire size. Why not just wait for the ARC8 to arrive and put on the right tire size for 18x10/10.5? (265/285 or something like that?)
