    Thanks, I am really happy with the way they look. They are not as light as your or the RPF1. But, I like the thin spokes and they concave out a bit. They are also easier to clean.

    Does Anyone know the weight on the Volk Ecos? I am leaning towards the Enkei RPF1's for their weight, but I can not find a weight on the Volks...

    I like those. I would have gotten those if I didn't find a set of RS+Ms. Glad everything worked out with the TPMS sensors.

    Thanks. I like them more and more each time I see them on my car. I'm having trouble deciding if I should sell my stock rims now, as I'm unsure if I'll want to give these up down the road when I sell the car.

    I appreciate suggestions from all the wheel pros here.
    I am new to the whole wheel thing, I hate the 15 inch wheels that 2010 prius has.
    I do not want to void any warranties, I want the TPMS to work fine after the switch and also use the 15 inch tires (Yokohoma Avid) that I got with the car(Would they look good ?)

    What are my options? Can I buy 15 inch rims from Tirerack and have them installed by the dealer? can the dealer order and install them ? Any idea on the installation charges?

    Sorry, lots of questions.

    you can use your old tires and tpms. almost all aftermarket wheels will support the tpms sensor on your car already. all you would do is just swap them over. they are already registered with the car. so, no trip to the dealer. you can purchase the wheels from tire rack or any other retailer. then you can just take your new wheels to discount tire and have the swap them out. that is what i usually do. just give discount tire a call and see what they would charge.

    I think it's about $20 per mount/dismount, so you're looking at close to $100 when you bring in loose wheels and tires. At least that's what they charge here.

    I bought mine at TireRack and had the dealer install them. (BTW, you can actually fit 4 tires + 4 rims into the 2010 Prius.) It cost me $135 to have them mounted with TPMS. They also repaired the slow leak in one of my old tires so I could sell the set. Without the tire repair, I'm guessing the cost would have been $110-$115.

    I think I read somewhere you have to go to a dealership to have your TPMS reprogrammed, even if you have the tires/wheels/TPMS installed somewhere else.

    I'm picking up a set of 17x8 5Zigen FN01-RC wheels in bronze Sunday. I'll post pictures as soon as I can.
