    I think sanding it a bit should be ok then.

    So you bought them new then, damn expensive! :biggrin:
    Don't know, Tom should know better coz he had raced in them.

    so u got the 7jj +35 offset right? thats the max u can go...
    another is 7jj +41 will make the caliper stuck more than the wheel u got now....


    if 8jj +28 also most likely u will face similar scrubbing with 7jj +35



    i would say instead of grinding the caliper... just add 1 think spacer like 5-7mm spacer...enough already to clear the caliper

    why laaaa u guys keep talking about offset... he already said its not touching the spoke... its touching the barrel. changing the offset wont help.

    imagine taking a 15" wheel.... and trying to fit it to a ferrari brake disc and caliper...no matter what the offset is it wont fit in the wheel coz of the barrel size right? abit extreme example... but same thing lor.

    TS either has to change wheels... or if the mechanic can do it safely, grind down the caliper abit for clearance. or installing a slightly smaller brake system. id recommend changing wheel.

    Oh shit.. we didn't see this clearly. @mADmAN is correct. If it's touching the barrel of the rim - you better change the caliper or upsize your rim.

    no need to upsize the rim... can still stick to 15" rim... just a different wheel with better wheel barrel clearance.

    as i mentioned before... RPF1 has a rather small wheel barrel design.

    Yes exactly! If touching the wheel barrel then playing with offsets will not help. But the strange thing is how come the Toyota Gazoo Vios race cars can use the RPF1? Or maybe those race Vios already have the calipers grinded off/modified too?

    I'd say if the touching is just a slight grazing on the surface, it's easier to just grind off the calipers a bit. coz it's a pity already have a nice RPF1 (if truly ori) but cannot use just due to very slight touching.

    Yes, not just the tire price but also the car performance and comfort level especially if change to 17'! If upsize to 16' then can still have a bit of comfort left but your tire price will be much more expensive than 15', almost double. If change to 17' then will be even more expensive and comfort will be practically gone, plus performance will be noticeably slower too due to much heavier rims! FYI I just bought a small hatchback for my son which came with 17' and super thin 205/40 tires. After driving it for just 2 weeks I could not stand it and changed the rims to 15' with 195/55 tires and the now car feels and drives sooooo much better! So yeah think carefully before upsizing, especially for small cars.
