195-65-15 G3/G4's on my cobalts & elantra, all weigh 3-500 lbs more than your Yaris, 100-150 lbs each tire less weight doesn't sound that much different. Actually have G3/G4 on all my cars. Tires are cheap vs tows or deductibles.

Recently I've been buying mine on Ebay (tireseasy), they often have lower prices on ebay than their own website, past have been from simpletire. Simpletire looks cheapest today.

They also make 195-60-15 if you wanted to stay a little bit closer to stock diameter.

Checked Nokian site, the
195-65-15 is listed at 25" OD, 832 revs/mile
195-60-15 is listed at 24.2 OD. 859 revs/mile
175-65-15 is 24.0 - 866 rev/mile

I don't know if you calculated or used their numbers. Page 19
