H&R Sport Springs on Xdrive

I have a 2014 f30 xdrive that I just put 20" Niche Targas on. I have H&R sport springs that I bought from Tire Rack that are to fit the xdrive f30 (according to Tire Rack). My question is - the front tires have about a 3-4 finger gap between tire (245/30) and wheel well and the back has about a two finger gap (275/30) -- if the drop is roughly an inch front and back, would it be possible to just add the springs to the front and close that big-ass front gap? I figure dropping front and back will just keep the uneven gap (albeit less gawdy) - or should I trust that the front springs will drop the front enough to even it out with the back?

I believe the drop is 1.6 front and 1.5 back.

If those sizes above are accurate, the problem is that your rear tires are 26.5" high and the fronts are 25.8". It's recommended that the size of the front and rear tires be within 0.5% on xdrive cars. The difference in your setup is 2.7%. Check out http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12
