if your concerned about rubbing, you might consider trying a 215/40/17 . I'm 2"s lower & have no problems with clearance.
You can d.d. on azenis rt-615,s but you will save alot of money when you get a dedicated set of race wheels& tires.( they are great , but wear fast especially if you drive agressively.)
azenis won't last much more than a season & a half when D.D. & autoX!
In SM, you still have to run a "DOT" tire even if it's an "R" compound, other wise you will be bumped into a prepared or modified class.
I'm in SM & run Nitto NT-01's this year & love them, but be prepared to replace R comp.s every season. that's the nature of race tires.
