Rim strutt clearance

I recently hit a HUGE pothole in my c-300/ 2001 i now have a rubbing noise from front... Mechanic said rim is bent but strutt to rim clearance was only 16/1000 of an inch... is that insanly too close... what is the clearance between inner rim and front strutt??? Could both strutts be bent inward exactly same distance? PLEASE! help.

If clearance is not what it once was, there has to be evidence of bending, breaking, tearing, slipping, etc.

This is body shop stuff, and not so much "mechanic" stuff.

This is an accident and body shop people know more about insurance coverage than mechanics.
