Default Is 20x9.5 Rim w/ 285/30/20 Tire too wide for rear if car lowered?

Hello. If I have 20x9.5 rear rims with 285/30/ZR20 Pirelli PZero Tires, are the rear tires too wide to fit in the rear tire wells of my 1998 Lexus GS300 if I drop my car with Tein Suspension? Will it rub? DO I HAVE to switch to 275/30/ZR20 inch tires? I would like to drop my car pretty low... Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. Shawn

It also depends on your offsets too.

It will fit. You probably need to role your fenders to clear them. I'm not really sure if the difference in size of the rear to the fronts will screw around with your ABS system tho.

Wouldn't the height of my rims & tires be the measurements that would matter rather than the width when it comes to the ABS on my car acting up?

Default I think..

275 will be a much better fit on 9.5 wheel....285 might bubble out a bit on the sides
