Assuming that the wheels are fairly close to standard offset then it shouldn't be a problem though it could be quite tight. Worst case scenario is taking the mud flap off..

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

The funny thing is, on my current Jimny I'm running the 215/75 r15 BFGoodrich Mud Terrains on standard rims and I haven't had to remove the mud flaps. On my last Jimny (both pre-2005 facelift) with the same wheels and tyres the mudflaps had to come off.

15 inch tyres size 7 inch width of the rim
If he can't tell you the et/off set which should be stamped on the wheel somewhere
then my advice is don't buy them if they turn up with a ET/off set of - 32 they will not fit

On my various plans and schemes to improve the road manners of mine I have gone through about every scenario I can find and in all honesty every available aftermarket wheel that fits, in some way alters some aspect of either the suspension or steering geometry. That is fine if you are needing said wheels to accommodate either wider tyres or to avoid running spacers as part of a modified car, but on a standard car I personally think the standard wheels are best.
