I took measurements when the wheels were off the car yesterday
Section width 9-5/8 (Tire Rack shows these as 9.8" on a 8.5" wheel. Bridgestone suggests 8-9.5" rims for this tire)
Hub to inner section 6-1/8 (i.e. lay the tire down, put a straight edge across the tire, measure to the hub)
In the front, the inner restriction is the strut
Hub to strut 6-5/8 (put a straight edge across the hub, measure up the distance of the widest part of the tire, measure into the strut at that point)
So there's 1/2" clearance on the inner side in the front with this setup.
