    Quite confused as I have a 15 inch tire but the wheel is technically 16 inches across, lol. Trying to figure out what size of screw on mooneye I would need lol. And is prius chat dead, I have revived more threads and been ignored more on this platform next to Twitter 20210102_210711.jpeg 20210102_210704.jpeg tapatalk_1609632959052.jpeg

    We're looking at a 15" gen2 wheel in the first two (2) images above, you can tell by the total number of spokes (6).

    The tire will mount and seal below the rim lip, approximately 5/8", multiplied by 2, that would be 1-1/4 inch, or the sum total in image #2. Looking at image #3, something closer to a 16" 'mooneye' could work quite well for this application, and a 15" may also work.

    Sorry to hear that you're unhappy with the participation level here in PC, it can be hit or miss in some of the less trafficked subs.

    I'm a little confused by the title for this thread, could you please explain "5th gen wheels 16s?".

    So 16.26 minus 15.87 is .32 roughly. So in fact the 15 inch disc would pretty much fully cover the wheel
