20" Tire Sizes On A Lowered F10

My car is going to be lowered on ACS springs, I'm going to install 20" wheels, 9" in front and 10" or 10.5" in the rear. I'm old-school and like the "hunkered-down" look of a lowered car with wide tires. It seems the go-to sizes most people are running on lowered car with 20" wheels is: 245/35's in front and 285/30's in the rear. Can I run 255/35's in front and 295/30's in the rear without any rubbing? This is a daily driver so if there is a chance of rubbing with 4 people in the car or rubbing every time I make a tight turn, I'll go with the narrower tires.

those sizes should work but you will need to make sure your offsets are on the higher side

245 35 20 up front with a 35 offset on a 20 x8.5.
This has room to go to a 255 when I lower
but the rear 285 30 20 on a 10" with a 38 offset
looks dangerously close when I lower but definitely not wider tire.
