Tire fitment with lowering springs

Going to get either the roush or frpp 1' lowering springs. I have 255/35/20 in the front and 275/40/20 in the rear. I'm pretty sure the rear will be fine but will the front rub or hit the fender wall? Been googling this today and haven't found any info that really answers my question.

Let me give you an idea. I am dropped 1.7" front and 2.4" rear and I run 19x9.5 rims with 285-35-19 on all four corners with no rubbing.

Pretty sure you'll be more than fine.

Really depends on the wheels you have...I'm running 275-35-19 front and 285-35-19 rears on 19x9" Brembo wheels. No issues with the Ford racing suspension setup...

Thanks, I have got most of my upgrades from them and will stay with them. Just wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions for other vendors.

You won't have any rub in the front with 255/35-20's. I used to have that size on my car before I upgraded to 275/35-20's. No rubbing with the 275's either.

You can also check tirerack.com and discounttire.com - but, I have been able to beat online pricing by checking around with local shops. Not local big-box stores that have a nationwide overhead to pay for, LOCAL shops.
