They should clear fine, depending on the wheel offset. I have 205/40/17's on mine and did have to "clearance" (whack with a 2 pound sledge) the bottom side of the spring perch slightly on one side - but that was for the diameter rather than the width.. Other than that they are fine and these wheels have a 42MM offset.

Have any of you Auto Crossers/Track Drivers run 205/55/14" or 205/50/15"
on your Mk1 without any problems such as rubbing on fenders or struts?
I may have access to some gratis track tires, but those are the only
sizes made that come close to the MK1s. I would prefer to use my old OEM
14" triangle wheels for these tires if possble. I am running 15" Ecsta
Spt. 195/50/15" as my daily & track set up now. I do have the TRD
springs, which only lower the car by about 3/4 inch. Any input is
welcomed. TIA, Jerry Helman/85Mk1/08Yaris "S"
