I cannot 100% confirm at this time if the Hoosiers in 275/35 or the R1 in 275/35 will have any issues up front.

Gearhead999s below says he's run R888's in that size and those run WIDE (a 265 R888 is wider then a 275 NT-01).

One customer mentioned running V710's in 275 with a minor rubbing issue, but I do not remember if that was strut tube rubbing or if it was fender liner rubbing while turning.

Hopefully someone can confirm the Hoosier and BFG fitment in that size on 18x10 et25.

Sounds like at least one person on the board (ShadeD1) is using 18x10's on the front with the 285/30-18 hoosiers without a problem. Only one way to find out for sure with this kind of stuff and that's to test fit.
You are correct, we either need to reference someone else's fitment for now, or someone has to do a little trial and error.

Raven Performance ran our 18x10's square on a E9X M3 with Michelin slicks what are either 275/35 or 285/30. Not sure if they spacer'ed that fitment. I'll ask them via email.
