HELP: Wheel size and lowering question

Wasup guys as some of you may know I have a 04 sixxer with 245/45/19.
My question to you is can I put a 1.6 drop in the front and 1.5" drop out back without any crazy rubbing. Right now the front rubs during tight turns.
My options are: sell the wheels
: get tires with smaller sidewalls, and if I were to due that what size would u suggest for the wheel. Pix of wheels are in my garage

Nope. I'm just estimating how lowered my car is because I can't remember the exact measurements from when I cut the springs. But I've still got like 2in of gap in the back and 1.5in in the front
