20's with 305's on coilovers?

So I just ordered a set of staggered wheels 20x8.5 and 20x10. I know the rear wheels have 45+ in offset. Would a 305 Mickey Thompson be to much when I install coil overs and lower the car to get rid of the fender gap or will I end up having the tires stick out and cause rubbing?

I have 305/35/20 on 20" wheels with +45 offset on Eibach Sportlines. They rub and I had to roll the fenders a bit. The right side still rubs. Couldn't roll the fenders anymore because of the way the quarter panels were welded at a couple points.

You may need to adjust the Coilovers to give the fender more gap to stop the rubbing.

I have MT Street Comps

Was that the front or rear you had to roll. Guessing that's the rear but wasn't certain. I've rolled fenders before so shouldn't be to big of an issue if I need to. And the MT street comps were the tires I was looking at aswell

The thing is if you would have a 10.5 or 11" wheel then it might not rub. 305 on a 10" wide wheel pinches the tires a bit so it kinda bulges outwards on both sides of the wheels a bit more than if mounted on wheels of a more correct width.
