Sizing Help on Lowered Yaris

I have a 2008 Toyota Yaris hatchback, and am looking to get 15x6.5 +35mm wheels and 185/60/R15 84H tires. The car is lowered on Tein lowering springs. There is still a little bit of wheel gap. I can measure the wheel gap if needed, or you can tell me another way to know how much it is lowered as I bought the car this way.

With this wheel and tire combination with +35mm offset should I expect to have rubbing issues?

Thanks for the help.

I changed some parts of my car like amg steering wheels too. I work with many makes and models of cars. If there’s one thing I’ve noticed about MB, it’s that modern models (the past 10 years or so) are not built to last. They’re built with a specific customer in mind: someone who won’t keep the car for more than 5 years, whether it’s a lease or trade.

As far as I know, Tein only makes one spring series for the NCP91 and it apparently drops the car 1.9" front and rear.

Yes it looks like about 2 inches so it's probably 1.9". Do you know if the 35mm offset is too small and will cause rubbing? Thanks.

Not sure.
I am only dropped 1.5" with 16x7 +40mm Enkei RP02s running 205/45/R16(23.2" tall tires) and I have miles of space.

Try playing around with this, It might give you a better answer than I can give.

Thanks for the link. I think there probably won't be any issues however it could be close during hard cornering, which I don't want because I use the car a ton.

Anyone else have the same or a similar set up to the sizes I proposed? Also if anyone knows of some nice 15x5.5 (or 15x6) 45mm offset alloys let me know - I can't find any for the life of me.

i suspect any rub you get will be at "hard lock" and i say this as my my snows are close to a 35 but are TALL which would compensate for the fact im not lowered i know my stock sized wider 14s on 35mm have miles of clearance everywhere
