With those spring rates, he should encounter rubbing much later than he would on typical lowering springs.
Those aren't that stiff at all. When I had tires poking I rubbed in the rear with 10k springs back there, and a much higher ride height.

I have those work XD9's in 17's with 42mm offset no spacer, my rear tires looks close to what yours look like in the pic but not as aggressive and I still rub all the time when i have people in the back, or when i hit a dip in the road while im crusin a little fast. The sidewalls actually have shavings coming off from hitting the fenders; all it takes is one bad dip or bump and have a camera ready to take a pic of your facial expression when you cringe and post it so we can laugh at you. So unless you're driving on nothing but perfectly flat paved road everyday and never having people in the back i dont recommend that setup.

Wow, that reminds me of my neighbor that wouldn't buy anything right for his car, only something that was cheap. His wheels and tires always were the wrong offset and stuck out like a good inch from the fender. Looked cheesy and ghetto rigged.

Hey, as long as you like it. My neighbor expected everyone else to like his style choices too.

Why do you have absolutely zero camber in the front?

Honestly I think the car would look great if it weren't for the fact it's running 0 camber. Some camber to tuck the tops of the tires inside the fenders would drastically improve handling, and would make everything look better.

Your friend (?) with the M3 convertible needs to have their license revoked for putting the top down and leaving the rear windows up. That's a huge faux pas.

The McGard rule cited by Evan is correct; DON'T violate it.
