Clearances with aftermarket wheels

What kind of offsets/wheel widths have you managed with the stock fenders? I'm about to have coilovers put on and want some rims to get that perfect fitment but not risk rubbing/contact obviously. Car is a 09 1.3 TS

Is that on the Sport model? I'm unsure if the TS/TS2/Tamura have exactly the same fitment spec as the Sport trim, my standard fitment is 6x15, 45 ET but the 1.5 Sport I've heard can run 6.5x16, ET 50 straight from Mazda which I'm sure would give me contact problems on a full lock.
