275 size tire in front?

Does anyone run a 275 in the front on their E9x? I am gonna be running a square set up of 18x9.5 ET35 all the way around. I have camber plates ordered and am thinking about about getting adjustable front arms. I can throw any sized spacer on too. Just wanted to see if anyone has gone through this already?

Got my wheels on this past Friday. Went with 18x9.5 ET 35 ARC -8s. Tire are Bridgestone RE71s 275/35/18 square. I am running 3.6 degrees of camber in the front to make them fit. First impressions were that I can feel the front turn in is exceptionally better than before. Not much bumpsteer at all. I do rub a lot in any tight situation such as parking lots. I am okay with that though and what I give up in there it more than makes up on the open road. Anyone looking to go that big in the front a 5mm spacer is needed to clear the strut. Anyone who daily drives in and out of tight places often may want to stay clear if you don't like rubbing at all. The steering feel does feel more direct as well, but that could just be from me being super excited about it and over analyzing. Either way it looks great and feels great!

Excuse how dirty the car is, I didnt give her a good wash when we were fitting everything. I will hopefully have beauty shots here in the next week or so!

Dude that's sick, congrats!

Since they're re71r's I imagine they actually spec closer to a 295 when compared to most any other brand/model summer tire.

Wild!

Thank you! I am super happy to finally get them on. Took about 2 weeks from when I got everything in to get them to fit right. I had the wrong bushing sent out for my camber plates and I upgraded all the control arms to M3 control arms. A couple late night after work and here we are. Now onto the next thing to tackle!
