Tire help!

Hello everyone! To begin with, I am aware that there are hundreds of threads regarding tire size recomendations and what not. I have spent numerous days searching google and various forums but I have still not found a precise answer
I have just purchased some new wheels for my 2014 GT (Downforce Wheels 20x8.5 & 20x10) I also plan on dropping my car on Eibach Sportlines. I am aware that this is such an agressive drop. Now my question for you all is what would be the widest tire I can run in the rear that can both fit the wheel properly and not have any rubbing issues with the sportline drop? With this being my first post on the forums I have tried to be as specific as possible because I am sure you have all seen enough tire posts haha . Here are the wheel specifications:

Front
Wheel Diameter - 20"
Wheel Width - 8.5"
Backspacing - 5.78"
Offset - +27mm
Lug Pattern - 5x114.3

Rear
Wheel Diameter - 20"
Wheel Width - 10"
Backspacing - 7.05"
Offset - +40mm
Lug Pattern - 5x114.3

Thank you in advance!

For the front my suggestion would be a 255 and as for the rear with that off set you would still rub a bit with a 295.

Thank you for your help. I will be going 255's in the front with the 295/30/20 in the rear. I think I will give it a shot - really want to run a wide tire in the rear.

Although I ran the GT500 wheels and tires....19x9.5 in front I also ran the 265x40x19.......in the rear they were 20x9.5 and I ran the 285x35x20's. I also had Sportline and could have actually gone to 295x35x20 with a slim margin of room.
Look at the pictures in my profile to see what it looks like if you want.
I was thinking of changing tires before I sold the car and 30's in the rear wouldn't have been what I would have choosen as the sidewall is just too small and would have made the ride which was already stiff.....more so.

Eibach Sportline springs are another 1/2" lower in the rear than Pro's.....it also depends on the offset.............
