    You just need wheels big enough to go over the upper arm! :D
    I doubt you'll be able to fit bigger tires on the Model Y since the front suspension design will almost certainly be the same as the Model 3. There's a knuckle above the tire in the front.

    If you space them out far enough then the knuckle doesn’t matter! :D
