Wheel Fitment on 2021 EB Base

Recently went to a shop where they would take care of me when it came to fitment, all I requested was 20" rims, a staggered setup, and Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs. They have done great work on many family friends cars so I entrusted them when it came to the details of the fitment.

Upon receiving my car I was severely confused as to the actual look of the car.

What fitment do you guys run on your EB when you get the Eibach pro-kit springs on 20s?

My shop got me on 245/35/20 up front and 275/30/20 on the rear. I personally feel like there is too much gap, it feels like there aren't even springs on the car, and I believe the tires are also not wide enough for the rim and I am getting a stretched look (which I don't hate but I feel doesn't help with the gap either).

Should I switch to Sportlines for a deeper drop, or increase the tire size from 30/35 closer to like 40s or in that range? Or possibly even a mix of both?

I feel like to compensate for this gap, the fender needs to meet the tire, or the reverse, or a mix of both. Which I'm confused as to why I'm having this issue in the first place if I went from stock height on 17s to a lowered setup on 20s. I could not imagine having this large of a gap (that to me feels like just stock gap) [forgive me if I'm exaggerating]

I think I'll be going 255/35 on the front and 285/35 on the rear and just give the springs more time to settle before I judge. On a side note, definitely going to get some spacers for the fronts as well (offset was a bit... off)
What wheels do you have? For reference, LMR sells wheel/tire packages that are known to work well. Check the sizes used here. You seem to be on the right track. The 275/30 seems to be too small of a diameter to me.

Replied in your other thread... Maybe a nice mod can consolidate the two threads you made. 🤷‍♂️
