    Selling because my wife didn't like the firmness of the ride so I will get 16x7's.
    38 mpg was the average. You may get 40 on flat lands but we did several uphills on those 2days.


  6. Ouch...must be the tires. When I had those rims on my GenIII I was getting around 43 in the winter months and around 48 during the warmer months.

    I just bought a set of the 16" touring wheels from El Nino, would you be willing to trade?

    Since yours are worth more since they are 1" larger and have good tires I would pay shipping both ways and throw in some cash. I have 4 touring wheels in dark dark grey in flawless condition and 3 wheel covers are great, 2 wheel covers have some scratches, i'm sure if you look further down in private sales you will find El Nino's sale post and you will see pictures and you will see where he wrote 'sold to cnschult'

    my friend from SF accidentally had a package sent to his old address in Mich, so I would mail the wheels with his package to him, you would meet him at a Fed Ex or Kinkos in SF (he lives near Market & Church), make the exchange and then he would mail your wheel/tire combo to me.

    My only concern is every prius i've seen with the scion wheels looks weird because the wheels sit so far inside the wheel well, I'm hoping someone can tell me what size spacers are needed to make the prius look good with the scion wheels.

    Sorry but I'm not looking for touring wheels. For the scion wheels you can use a 5mm spacer. The offset is 45 on them and wheels with 40 offset fit flush instead of the sunken wheel look.
    Here is a side pic for ref.

    Wow....712miles round trip. Gotta think about that. I could really use these since my tires are on their last leg.
