Aug '22: Sold my 05 Prius (230K) for $4800. So 8 years, 79K miles cost me just $2200 of depreciation! Only have '17 Prime (103K) now. Aug 18, 2022

      Tough question, and it only allows 140 characters here! I'm keeping stock alloys, covers off, and probably getting slightly oversize tires.

      I just picked up the Prime and had a question. You seem to be very knowledgeable regarding upgrading the tires and rims on it. I live in SE WI. What should I do if I'm after a more sportier look for the rims. I hate the alloy wheel and hubcap combo, but they provide the best EV range and overall mpg's. If I upgrade to 17's I want to make sure I do if it right. Or is it best to leave everything as is?
