Depends on the width and offset on the wheels

With the 45 offsets out back you should be fine with a mild drop.
Sportlines might be too agressive.
I had 305 30 on the rears and I never rubbed even on a hard bump.
You could always machine the back of the wheel safely up to 3mm to get a hair more clearance if you need.

That's about the same ? I had I got a 275/40 in the rear and I'm going to drop 1/5 inch and take off isos to get the extra .25 will this take care of that ugly gap I have?

Cutting them will definelty lower it more but I heard that it will make the ride quality a little more harder but not much of a difference.
