The wheels offset, the state of his fenders (rolled or untouched), his ride height, and camber are going to have greater impact.

Just stating facts.
and if you know the offset game you will know that those mm make a big difference...
its still gonna put the corner of his tire closer to his fender....

This is why alignment being just a lil off can mean the difference between what scrapes or not...

Not really a fan... Looks way too big, with too much wheel gap.
