    No, the wheels on the plug In Prius are unique to the plug in Prius (both models, base and advanced). They are not covers like on Prius 2, 3 and 4.

    Here's a pic of the Plug In Aluminum Alloy wheels:

    The redesigned 2012 'regular' Prius still will have wheel covers for the Prius 2, 3 and 4 but they are redesigned and IMO look WAY better than the wheel covers on the 2010/11. Here's a pic of the new ones on a 2012 (by the way, the Prius 5 continues to have the same 17" rims which have been available on the 2010/11 Prius 5):

    I hope the Plug-in center caps fits our cars, I like the matte finish.

    They should, those are the same center caps my current 2010 Prius 5 has in the 17" rims.

    Yep, I agree.

    On the other hand, the plug-in alloy wheels look lame and non-sporty compared to the 5 spoke design.
