Default wheel/tire size with lowered suspension

Hi all, I wanted to get an idea of what size wheels and tires people are running on the various performance suspensions that end up lowering the car? I am looking at running 18x9 wheels on the front with 255/45-18 tires, and 18x10 wheels on the rear with 285/40-18 tires.

Will I run into a rubbing issue if I go with the Ford Racing suspension pack? I believe it lowers the car 1" on the front and about 1.5" on the rear as do most.

Thanks!
Scott

Should look pretty good. I'm planning on doing the same thing.

Thanks.. I was hoping to hear that answer.. I asked mostly because the slope from my driveway to the street is rather steep, and when I lower it I will have to take it a bit of an angle.
