Talking What rims, tires and springs to get?

I'm sure a lot of people have asked the same question and you might have answered it already, but I'm just new at this and not technically good at cars so I hope you'll understand and be patient with me.

I just wanted to know if anybody had any problem with the specs that I'm going to give later on. Just wanted to hear your personal experience if somebody already have this specs put in on their cars.. I'm mostly concerned about the rubbing that might occur and the quality of the ride since I might drop the car using 1.5" springs.

I've read good things here so I've chopped down my choices to a few, here are those (please post comments on each one if you think it might cause any problems, such as rubbing, etc):

1. 205/45 (rims) 16 x 7 (tires) +40 (offset)
2. 215/45 16 x 7 +40

3. 205/40 17 x 7 +40 or +42 or +45
4. 215/40 17 x 7 +40 or +42 or +45
5. 205/45 17 x 7 +45
6. 215/45 17 x 7 +42

I've read that the last one on my list would probably have rubbing, but still I wanted to have your opinions. If you need to change anything from the value (like offsets) to make it work, then feel free to do so..

Thanks a lot guys.. Hope to hear from you soon!!

anything on your list with +40 offset will rub, you will find that a wheel that actually fits a 205 on a Yaris is expensive, unless its just for showboating not turning under hard breaking or bumps.
