    Being too lazy at the moment to pull off a wheel cover I am wondering if anyone has a picture of the bardOE wheels on a 2020 Prime Limited. On my 2010 gen 3 the wheels looked much better without the wheel covers.
    thanks

    The 4th Gen rims, including prime rims, are almost identical to 3rd gen. You would need to see them side-by-side to discern difference.

    I really like the stock 17s that were offered with the 2010. They fill out the wheel well

    I wonder what country that pic was taken, maybe Britain (license plate a give away)? It's a dead-ringer for ours, but looks like there's a proximity sensor in the front bumper, beside the "fog" light.

    It's an Italian plate. The sensor is one of the front parking sensors.

    Yea, my parking sensors are further back on the sides of the bumper, but mines also a 2010, not sure if they moved in later years

    Italy. The EU plate has an ā€œIā€ country identifier.
    those are aftermarket parking sensors. The one on your car is factory and is for the Intelligent Parking Assist.

    Yeah we looked back and forth, between 15" clunky plastic covers, and our 2010 (CDN) Touring:

    The wheels stayed the same right through to 2015, as far as I know.

    The 17" wheels on the new Corolla are quite good as well. Perhaps they fit on the older Prius.

    2012 through 2015 Plug-In Prius rims (15") look nice too, if you can find a set.
