Aggressive Offset + Drop? I have a question

my rears are 10.5s with a +25 offset 295/30s

I wanna do a subtle drop
The Eibachs drop it .5 in the rear.
The Tire is VERY close to the fender and I have about a 1 finger gap as it is.

I rub slightly with someone in the back.

Is this setup going to work?

Will it really be ok? The OP says he rubs already. A drop would only accentuate that.

This setup should rub a lot. An ET19 11" wide wheel will stick way out. Are you sure it is not ET29?

10.5 +25 with 285/30-20 tires(most brands) dropped will not rub.
the 295/30-20 may rub with certain brands.

but, you can tweak the suspension a little bit during alignment and you should be fine.

I have PS2s

What kind of suspension tweaking can I do with an alignment?

I could use some help on this, as I'd like to make a decision on springs.

I forgot to mention my rims are 19s

So the rears are 19x10.5 +25 295/30 PS2s.

Julius got any input?

You shouldn't rub with Spring drop on that set up with the PS2's.
We tried the Nitto Invo 295 on +20 offset and it didn't rub.
