    Is the 1st picture glossy black with machined face or chrome? I can't tell.

    I like the one with the machined lip. Otherwise...the whole thing will be black including the tires. Just my opinion. Either way...they are nice rims.

    I'd go for the 1st one. All black rims seem a bit played out, especially with an increasing number of 2012s sporting black alloys.

    Have you looked at the 5 Axis wheels? I like the 6S:F style. You can look at them at fivead.net.

    Looks better than the all black. Played with the wheels on discount tire with the drag wheels. Check it for yourself. I played with it with the closest Drag wheels with those colors. I'm not recommending the Drag wheels but rather tell you how it looks with those colors. The Silver or white looks great to. You can choose the exterior color prius you want and match them with the wheels. I thought that was cool for discount tire to do that. Tirerack also has the same thing.

    I like the first ones, but either way it should be awesome. Of course you will post pics with the rims installed... :cool:

    For some cars(like nissan & infiniti) the 1st ones w/ staggered would look baddass, but for me, I think the 2nd ones would look better as it would match better w/ your taillights & blck. & white color scheme. Sorry to make your decision even harder:D.

    I like the 1st one, but it seems it would be better the 2nd one for you car since you have full body kit, otherwise go with 1st...your body kit makes your car very aggressive, you need aggressive wheels...
