New tires/rims if i drop 1.5"?

I am sold on the hotchkis track pack TVS track pack. It gets lowered 1.5 inches though and I am concerned about rub. Has anyone kept stock (brembo setup) and was there/is there any issues?

The kit is pricey, I can't handle new rims and rubber too

Well I have Steeda wheels 295/30/20 rears. They had to trim something in the rear to keep them from rubbing. I went Steeda kit which is 1 rear and 1.25 front.
Nothing rubs in the front at all. Those are 255/35/20 fronts.

Stock Brembos should be fine.

More than good on that setup. I run 305/45R18s on a 1.5" drop and it's nowhere close to rubbing.
