Anyone riding 285s and 305s and also lowered?

I have these tires on my 20x10s and 20x11s and after I put them on, the wheel gap seemed greater than before. It looks like there's a solid two inches of space. I'm wondering if any of you have lowered your cars and by how much.

What size tires did you have on before you put these on?

I'm about to do a 1.25" drop on my car, hopefully this weekend.
Got my pfadt springs from Apex Chase coming by UPS tomorrow or Friday.

I'm running ZL1 rep wheels.
Front:
20x10 +23
275/40/20

Rear:
20x11 +43
305/35/20

It'll be fine lowered 1.25" and not rub at all. And look a hell of a lot better without the massive wheel gap.
I'll be sure to post pics after I install.

Yes, It is basically a stock ZL1 set-up lowered. As long as your offsets are correct you will have no issues. My storage wheel set-up I have 275/40/20 on 20 x 10 et25 on all four corners lowered and there was no rubbing either.

Take a look at my build thread in my signature as there are tons of pictures of the car lowered.

275/40/20 front and 315/35/20 rear with Hurst wheels on Eibach r2's, the back is as low as you can go without rubbing the wheels on accel.
