2012 Mustang Tire and Wheel fitment question

I have a 2012 V6 with the performance package. Having a 19" Rim the tires are insanely pricey compared with 18" or 20". I am looking at a tire and wheel combo and wanted to know if you more experienced guys think it would cause problems. The car is not lowered any.

Front rims would be
20x10.5
Offset: 45mm
Backspacing: 7.52"
Tires are 255/35/20

Rear Rims:
20x10.5
Offset: 35mm (also can order with 45mm offset )
Backspacing: 7.09"
Tires 305/25/20

I am more worried about the fronts rubbing than the rears, but if you see a problem with either I'd love to hear it.

Fronts will rub. Rears will poke. 45 will be better than 35 in the rear, but they still won't be under the fenders.

You can get square 10's in a 43-45 offset, and they will fit front and rear, and you can rotate them.

Thanks csa, I had the feeling the fronts would either rub or stick out.

What tires are you after? I don't see a huge price difference between most 19" and 20" sets.
With 18s on the other hand, prices are much more affordable depending on your goals.

Hi King, the tires I was looking at were Toyo Proxes T1r. Seem to have decent reviews and are priced very well at tirerack.

I'm running 20x10 square with +48mm and they clear by a mile everywhere.
