I only went up one size. No noticeable change in mpg.
here some so u can see how they look
What rim / tire size combinations are those?
They look pretty awesome and I'm pretty jealous

My 2 cents. Most of us driving Prius C's came from driving larger less fuel efficent cars or trucks. We went from 20ish MPG to 50+ MPG. So my point is why worry about loosing 4 to 6 MPG when you are making your car look cool and personalized. Your still about 20 MPG in the plus colume. The trade off is well worth it.
Thanks to AutoMo, I got myself a set of Scion XB wheels. I was also considering several Honda 4x100 rim options, but these rims came at a reasonable price. I'm still trying to source Toyota caps for these wheels, hence no-caps.

If I had the funds, and wanted to swap wheels I'd go with weds, Or Volk, super light but they a $$$ Anyway vived racing has a bunch of smaller wheels 15x5.5 and 15x6 . I must say the Volk 8 spoke bronze are nice, and would look amazing on my moonglow, but they break the bank.

I like those window visors on this black car. I had some on my fit and loved/miss them.
mermaximus thanks for posting that awesome Black Prius. Love the wheels & ride height. Very cool. The more I see plus size Wheels on these cars the more I want some. Big wheels just make the car look right.
I found my twin! My Prius C with Scion XB 15" alloys and a Prius C with the optional 15" alloys:
I am hoping to get these soon, king wheels drifta with red piping, have the red prius c.
I Like the XB rims!! Ordered and waiting for delivery on Monday! Called Tire Kingdom and they quoted $24 per wheel for installation including new TPMS kit. Is the TPMS kit needed? Can I not re-use the ones from my current wheels? Any suggestions on best way to the tires swapped? BTW, any luck with the covers?
I paid the same for the rim/tire swap. You can use the same TPMS sensors, just make sure when they do the swap that they keep each sensor at the original wheel location. If you do that, you shouldn't have any problems! Handling feels a bit stiffer, though it's a tad bit more bumpy.
Yeah, the XB rims looks more aggressive on the Prius C, while still looking factory. I think the optional alloys look a bit conservative.
Here's a close-up (updated image with Toyota OEM center caps):
I just ordered the Drag DR31 wheels in black for my C4 Habanero that I'm picking up today! I will be placing the OEM 15" alloys up for sale on this forum as soon as my DR31's arrive, this wheel thread has been very helpful in helping me decide what wheels to get, thanks all!
Post pictures when you get them mounted!
These are the Drag 31 wheel in a plus size. I really like this look. However I have a kid going off to college this year so I will have to Keep on Dreaming..
I'm curious why people are running 185/65's? that increases the circumference and width. I always heard when you increase the width you decrease the height. 185/60's are just a tad smaller (-.8%) than stock 185/65's are 2.1% bigger, and wider. It seems on a small car this would be harder to spinn
Do you guys like black rims on white cars, I digg these...
