To many variables from one vehicle to the next to give you a or answer.

Other than that you're best off to take carefully measurements - axle can be offset, previous body work irregularities, other $tuff - and consult with wheel/tire supplier for best combo.

Many that i had penciled out as 'fitting' still had some clearance issues under operating conditions that required further mods ...
