Megan Coilovers factory spring rates

Hi guys. I'm looking into purchasing a set of the euro street coilovers from someone who bought these new and totaled their f10 before they were able to mount them. Too good of a deal to pass on. My problem after reviewing them online is that the spring rates seem to be too soft for what I'm looking to achieve with my coilovers. Website states:

SPRING RATES:
Front Spring: 10kg
Rear Spring: 4.5kg

My concern is the rears. I'd like to lower my car enough to cover all wheel gap front and rear and I'm worried about rubbing with such soft springs in the rear. Does anyone have any experience running these coilovers that can chime in and share their experience? Maybe share some photos of their ride height with them installed?

Picture of my old e60 slammed on BC Racing Extreme Low kit on 26kg/24kg spring rates.

You can change the springs to any company, as long as Inner/outer diameter is the same.

Swift is a popular upgrade.
