Default Rear Tire Question

Okay, I did a quick search and I couldnt find the info that I was looking for.

I'm about to lower my TA and put new rims and tires on the car. The new setup is as follows:

Strano Springs
KYB AGX Adjustable shocks/struts
Edelbrock Adjustable Panhard Rod/UMI Panhard Rod Relocation Kit
BMR Adjustable LCAs/UMI Bolt on relocation brackets
17x9.5, 275/40/17 up front and 18x10.5, 305/35/18 in the rear.

I'll be having an alignment job done at the time the tires are mounted on the wheels, as well as having the rear end re-centered from lowering the car.

My question is this...

With the car being lowered, will I have any rubbing issues with the 305s? I'm having a body shop paint a hood for me, while doing that they're going to roll the rear fenders.

Will I need spacers? BFH mod? Bump stop removal? etc...

I have Strano's with 315-35-17s. I had to do the BFH, cut off my bumpstops & rolled the fenders. No rubbing now lol
