20" rear wheels with eibach springs tire size? Help

Having a lot of trouble deciding on tire and wheel sizes for my 99 GTS for placing my order with Forgeline.Can anybody tell me if they have run 355/30 on 20 inch rims in the rear that are 13 inches wide? Is there rubbing issues? I was told by a very good reputable person that I should back the 20 inch rim down to 12.5 inches in width and go with a 345 that way the tire is not stretched at 12.5. I was also told that if I go to 13 width on a 20 inch rim With the 355/30 it will rub, I am contemplating going 19 inch wheels on all 4 and putting a 355 30 on the rear, and going 295/ 30 front and having the front wheel 11" width. I'm dropping a lot of money on having wheels built by Forge line, and I'm being ultra picky right now because there's so many different options and sizes. I need some help and guidance. Suggestions anybody? Remember I'm putting Eibach lowering springs on and that's it. I don't want to drop the money on tires and having the wheels built only to wish that I did it a different way , thanks

Only two tires will fit on 20s with lowering springs. Nitto Invo or PZero IIRC. Both come in a 345/20.

345/25/20 would be the correct size. I'm running Invos on lowered car with no rubbing. 20x13 wheel size. No issues.

My exhaust would hit before the tires rub. Sort of a built in bump stop.

Thanks guys, what are your thoughts on since I'm having the wheels built by forge line having the rear at 12 1/2 instead of 13 so the tires don't look as stretched ? I don't want the rim of the tire sticking out further than the tire, so I was told that's the reason they suggest making the rear with 12 or 12.5.

We are all running 13" and no problems. Whoever told you that gave you bad info.

I've had hundreds of compliments on my wheels and I've never had anyone say that my rims look too wide or stick out past the tire. Sounds like you are making this harder than it needs to be.

Honestly you probably wouldn't really notice a 1/2" difference. Go with the 12.5 if you like the tire looking buldged, opposed to square.

I'm shopping for new rubber. My tires do not rub. I currently have:

rims:
front - CCW 505a 19" x 10"
rearl - CCW 505a 20" x 13"
rubber:
front - NITTO Invo 285/30ZR-19XL
rearl - NITTO Invo 345/25ZR-20
I have lowering spring caps that lower it .5" to .75".

I was thinking about trying another tire. Is the statement above true? Is it only referring to rubbing on 20" fronts?

I see that Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP comes in:
front - 285/30ZR/19
rearl - 335/25ZR-20

I'm running 345/35 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2's on HRE 20x14 rims and a Penske adjustable setup. Figment is great, tire is ultra sticky and just about perfect.
