SC rims with slicks? Will they fit?

I have Eibach lowering springs and want to run SC wheels with 28x10/16 (255/60/16) Hoosier slicks at the track and I want to make sure it will fit on my 96 Bird with no rubbing issues. Anyone else run this set up?

I'm not using racing slicks, but I do have Eibachs and Sport wheels with 255/50/16's if that helps. Lots of clearance for them.

Stock springs, 275/60-15 M/T drag radials, 2" of space.
These are 28" tall.
If you car is lowered you might have rubbing when you hit any bump.

Back in 2006, I ran Mickey Thompson ET Street Drag Radiols 255/50/16 on Sport rims. My car was lowered with the 1" Vogtland springs. I had no issues
