I have 20x8.5s 255/35 up front with 30mm offset and 20x10s 285/35 in rear with 48mm offset. Lowered on Eibach Sportlines. Which is a 1.3" front and 1.7" rear drop on my v6. I haven't had any problems. I was on the highway doing 80 hitting some good size dips/bumps to test the waters, and did not bottom out or rub at all.

Are you changing shocks/struts too?

You'll probably going to need to change shocks/struts with such a significant drop within the next year or so. The oem shocks/struts will wear out a lot faster.

You should have no issues as long as you use the +45 in the rear. You might be able to get away with a +40 as well, depending on what size tire you need. Fronts +30 to +35 is good, but you could also go as much as a +25 in the front.
