Will wheels fit?

I am about to order a set of wheels but before I do I want to make sure that these wheels will fit. This is the setup I plan for:

Front: 8½*18", ET 18, Tires: 245/45-18

Rear: 10*18", ET 20, Tires: 275/40-18

Will I have clearense problems with this setup on my -94 T-bird? I'm especially concerned about the 10 inch wide rear wheels...
I also plan to lower the car by 1.75 inch...

Happy for any suggestions, advise, etc.

ET is the wheel offset? If so, you'll need more than 18 mm on the 8-1/2" wheels ... more like 30 to 35 mm. 275-40-18 on 10" wheels will likely need to have the rear fender lips rolled or trimmed for enough clearance on a lowered car.
