    Guys really not trying to post whore but I am ordering these today and just wanted to give anybody with this set up to chime in. I started this thread previously and pretty much got my answer

    http://priuschat.com/forums/gen-iii...ordering-new-wheels-have-offset-question.html

    Just wanted to here from someone with first hand experience running this setup. Just really wnating to make sure they will still be flush thats all. I don't want them sticking out at all. I realize there will be a slight hit on mpg from the difference in offset from stock 17's.

    Thanks everyone and once again sorry for another post on the same subject. Just a little nervous on the offset.

    Just curious, what rims and tires are you purchasing?

    Are you lowered?

    Ordering MB Boosts and no tires yet. I only have about 12K miles on the current tires. Not lowered yet but I do have some of the TRD springs on the way.

    Looks good! I was thinking about going 38mm offset myself but 8" instead of 7". I want to run 225 instead of 215.

    Are you lowered any? I think that may rub a lot if you lower your Prius. I tried my 17x7.5 +35mm offset wheels & they stuck out too much in the front & rubbed a lot on my lowered Prius on Eibach springs.

    I think you may be right. I may have to go 7.5 and +43mm offset to be safe.

    These look nice. IMHO, at 7.5" width, 43 offset would be the best fit:).

    I ended up going with a set of Moda MD10 wheels, 17 x 7.5 with +38mm offset. Looks great!
