I've seen people asking about setups like this. My only advice would be if you plan on a drop, even a small one, go with 19s. Dropping my car 1/2" in the rear would require gutting the wheel wells. This is stock sport suspension. I did have the spring perches swapped at Supreme Power, which dropped the front 1/2". No rubbing, didn't even have to roll the fenders.
I'm actually dropped on H&R Race and beside a roll thats all you should need. I actually have spacers on mine. I have 12mm spacers in the rear which brings the rear offset to +30mm. Now I do have smaller tires and slight camber, but I have figured out that I can still run the 285 tires WITHOUT spacers and less camber and still be perfectly fine. The natural negative camber that the car makes when lowered will actually help. So if you lower you'll be fine.
