Default Rubbing With 275/40/19 Rear on Lowered 2012?

I just installed the Steed Sport springs on my 2012 GT. My next change is new wheels and tires, and was able to pick up a set of Boss 302 wheels for $600. Im not keen on the stock Boss 302 tire size and would like to go with a 275/40/19 in the rear. The only thing I'm not sure about is if this size would rub since the car is lowered? Anyone have experience with this, or advice.

Front boss 302 wheel specs:
19" x 9" wide
5-lug, 4.5" bolt circle
169.3mm backspacing
42mm offset

Rear Boss 302 wheel specs:
19 x 9.5-in.
5-lug, 4.5" bolt circle
180.9mm backspacing
45mm offset

Guys are running 305 tires on lowered cars with no issues. 275 will fit fine with the boss wheels that you chose.

My 305/45/18s rubbed, I had Eibach pros on. Switched them out to GT500 springs and trimmed off about 1/2". WOrks just right now.

I would be more concerned with the height of the tire. It will be close but I think they should tuck right in.
