hi guys!! noob here needing rim fitment help.

New to the site I traded my wife my 2011 Nissan Juke for her 2010
Yaris hatch. We had a baby girl and it was easier for her to take the baby seat with the second set of doors on the juke plus a wee bit safer.
I'd like some help with finding a perfect match for my yaris.

I'm looking around for some rims I found the set I like on eBay
Xxr 530's.
Available in 16-17" dia. And multiple widths and offsets.
I'd like to know how wide I can go both front and rear I can have the fenders pulled about an additional 1-1.5" on both front and rear.
I want to keep the overall diameter of the stock wheel.
Mostly interested in a 16" but if I can go wider 17" will do.
Also not only do I not understand offsets but I don't quite catch on to tire dimensions.

So far only going to upgrade to stiffer springs and lower 1.5" to hold the sound system I'm planning to build in the back where the seats and spare used to be.

If anyone has a decent front sway bar, strut bars for sale I might be interested.
I did use the search option to not try and repost this question that seems to be asked everyday, but my question seems to be a bit too broad.

Thanks in advance for the help!!

You can check out this crazy guy's thread. He has a lot of wide wheels he put on his car.
There is also a thread on just wheels you could check out as well.
There is a section called Wheels, Tires and Suspension for more general stuff as well.

cali yaris, a member here, can also help you with various parts for the yaris.
You can check out microimage for various parts and accessories.

Since you already have an idea of what you want (XXR530) I'd choose the 16x8 +20 offset size.

You can read more about offsets on various sites on the internet. To put it in simple terms. The higher number the offset is, the further in the wheels will sit in the car's wheelwell. The lower the number, the further out, sticking out of the wheelwell.

Having a 8 or 9 width rim requires a wide tire as well. When I was looking at tires for my 15 in almost all their ranges were 5.5 to 7.5 width. Bigger rim size may mean a slower take off as well depending on its weight.
One more thing, you want a front sway bar? Most go for a rear sway, at from what I seen on the forum.

if you drive that much, you should think about staying in the 15" wheel size. The Yaris feels every additional pound on the wheels, and there are still some phenomenal 15" tire options.
