Will I Rub?

So here's my current setup:

front: BBS CH 18x8.5 ET 35 wrapped with Federal 595SS 235/40
rear : BBS CH 18x10 ET 40 wrapped with Federal 595SS 265/35
Note: Federal tires run a little wider than the stated sizes, thus both front and rears are neither stretched or muffin top.

I am planning to drop my car this weekend with FK Silverline X to about a finger to half a finger drop. Will my wheels/tires rub? Do I need spacers?

Alright, thanks. Hahaha the reason I use Federal is because this is my street setup. My track setup uses 255/35 square Yokohama AD08.
