Does anyone know if the 2012 15" wheel covers fit the 2010 model?
Yes and the other way around too.
This site has been redesigned since the last time I was here... I guess now I am supposed to 'like' your helpful suggestion rather than thank you? Thanks at any rate! I have a 2010 model and broke a wheel cover by hitting a curb. My neighbor just got a 2012 model and took off the wheel covers because he likes the black wheel better without the cover, and gave his to me. I tried putting them on last night, but wasn't certain they fit and wanted to make sure first before applying pressure or using a rubber mallet.
Go for it although I would suggest just using your hands to bang them into place. There is less of a chance in scratching them that way.
I have done this myself when I switched wheels with The Critic for awhile. He has 2011 wheels but I wanted to use my 2012 covers. They fit perfectly!
I wonder what they look like with the silver wheel of the 2010-2011? When you install them take a pic and post on here please.
Not a great picture but you can sorta see them. The silver makes the spokes look wider. Sorta like the 17" OE wheels.
How paintable are the wheel covers? Have a 2012 grey Prius and don't mind the wheel covers, but wouldnt mind having a different look without the cost of custom wheels....
You could paint them quite easily. Just make sure you put some sort of clear coat on them so they don't show scratches well.
