    In a word, yes.

    AFAIK, same diameter, but the groove inside the centre bore, that the jaws of the centre cap lock on are a different distance from the front face of the wheel.

    The 2016 and up Prius and Prius Prime have a deeper lip for the center cap to grab onto. So the only center caps that will work are Toyota part #42603-52170 for the center caps.

    I wonder why they would do that? Intentional, oversight? Oh well.
