2001 Bullitt Suspension and tire combo

I'm starting to play around with some ideas on what springs and size tires I wanna order for my Bullitt. I've got a set of Anthrasite DD bullitts sitting in my closet waiting for some shoes to put on, 18 x 9's for the front and 18 x 10's for the rear. I figure while i'm at it I might as well drop the car some more from the stock 3/4" drop to get rid of any gaps. So throw some ideas out there to how I can really make this car look mean with a good combination of the two, what size tires and how much drop?

Just an FYI... I have DD 18x10 out back with 285/35s and 18x9 in front with 265/35s and love the look. I have FMS springs sitting in my garage that I haven't installed yet and they'll roughly give me a 1" all around drop.

Once I run the rubber off of these I'll most likely be heading towards a 315 out back.

I have 17x10.5's with 315/35's on the back, 17x9's with 275/40's for the front. I've picked up H&R SuperSport springs and Bilstein shocks, just waiting on the front struts and caster camber plates to get here now. I've seen quite a few with SuperSports, and they look great.

Another spring that's not as well known, but raved about by those who have them are the Vogtlands. Seems that everyone that has them swears by them over everything else they've had. Might be worth checking out also.

Ya i think i'll be going with the H&R Super sport springs for sure, i really like the height they lower to. On the tires, i was thinking about maybe 245 35's on the front and 285 40's for the rear. Just as long as i won't have any rubbing issues.
