Will a drop work with my wheels/tires?

I'm looking into a nice drop for my car but was curious if I could do it. I have NAD-4 Wheels staggered (19x8.5) 35 offset and (19x10) 40 offset with Falken 452's 19/35/235 and 19/30/265. When these were installed on my car, the tire shop said I had very minimal room when I cut my wheel hard left/right. Would a drop intensify this? I attached a couple photos below to help a little bit. I would also like some input on which drop kit to go with (that would work best, and look decent on my car). Thanks in advance!

You may want to roll your rear fenders your 19x10 are on the agressive side. If you go with a spring drop, go with the H&R sports for minimal drop I think you'll be close but fine with them, we have them in-stock here.

But best option is go with a coilover like a KW V2(so you can adjust it yourself) I'd still probably roll my rear fenders.

Its fine. You got plenty of room in the back, the front might rub if you really slam the car. When you drop the car, the rear will butterfly, I am almost 100% sure you wont have rubbing issue in the back with a 1.5-2" drop. My car is slammed and I don't have rubbing issue.
