2 inch drop running 315's???

Yet another 10 spoke wheel question sorry but no one seems to be able to answer me. I lowered my 2010 ss 2 inches and I am about to purchase a set of zl1 10 spokes (replicas) and I am wondering if I can cram a 315 wide tire in the rear. 20x8 fronts and 20x11 rear ? Anyone lowered 2 inches running a 315 ?? Any help would be appreciated !

I posted this all over an no one is running this set up, seeing if I have any luck here. I think it's do able but not 100 percent

My car is 2" lowered but I have 22" and 265s and anything bigger would be close. 20s maybe OK.

The only other one I found was a guy with 1.5 drop running 315/35/22's so I am guessing a 2 inch drop running a 315/35/20 would work

I've got 1.4" and I barely have 1/2" gap from tire to fender, it will fit but if you hit any bumps, suspension might not have any room to travel.
Good luck and post pics!

could you measure from the ground to the middle of your rear wheel well I wanna know the distance if you could. I am at I think 28 and 1/2 inches . I wanna see compared to a 1.4 drop how much of a difference there is. I've looked at my my rears an I think it wiill work but not 100 percent yet... I might have to move a brake line that is down there ... Wondering if I should go 20 x 10 or 20 x 11...

Yeah I was referring to you with the 22's. You are the closest to what I wanna do ... I might have to do a 305 on a 20x10 but honestly I don't want to lol

I have a Pfadt Stage 2 kit on my with 315 tires and measurement from the top of the tire to the edge of the fender I get 3/4" space and the width of the tire is flush to the rear quarter. With a 2" drop, that tire will be tucked in there and will most likely rub when you hit bumps or have extra weight on the back.

question is not really a suspension issue..it really pertains to your offset on rim..my rims are so correctly offset, as is uforlife, we have cor wheels ..i run 315x30x22 and jsut exactly enough clearance on inside of rear fenders...if you rims offset is 1 mm different then ours, it would most likely rub..so you would need a less wider of tire to make up the difference in offset..i might possibly fit a 325, but don,t want to risk it not fitting...also tried to run a 2 inch drop, but ran out of camber adj and really wore the crap out of inside tires...running a little over 1 1/2 so i can keep alignment perfect..imo
