    I know this is the Aftermarket Wheel thread, but anyone know if the Prius Gen 3 wheels will fit a Prius C? Anyone ever see this before?

    Thanks.

    No they won't fit. Prius C is 4x100 bolt pattern and the regular prius is 5x100

    I am planning on getting Tanabe DF210 springs..and going with these wheels with stock 175's and Yes I do know the tires will be stretched...

    15x7+20 Rota Grid V's

    [​IMG]


    These pictured I believe are 0 offset. so slightly less aggresive...

    Other option was 15x8+20 Rota Grid Concaves, but I think it's too aggressive and didn't want to run a lot of camber...even though x3kenster's car looks nice.

    Anyone want to help me pick a color? P3 is MGM *like craigB's*

    Those look like the Grid Classic's. You should check out Wheeldude; they're located in Fremont. I've never been to their shop, but hear good things. I got my wheels through Auto Innovations in Milpitas where I have my work done, but most likely the wheels came from Wheeldude.

    The stock tires are fine with 15x7. Slight stretch, nothing crazy. But the wheels would definitely look a lot better with a thinner profile tire, like 50.

    Been running the stock tires on 15x7 +41, dumped, no rubbing at all, even with a full car.

    So wheels are actually 15x7+20...should still be fine. I'm used to driving cars that rub anyways...haha

    +20 is a pretty aggressive offset. I'd run it by a shop to get a feel for the pros/cons, especially if you're considering lowering it.

    I noticed you have the #1 mpg for 500 miles. Yet your fuelly mpg is 55. :confused: Did you drive a special course to max your mpg? Or jack up the front end and set the cruse and wait for 500 miles ha ha?:LOL: But seriously how did you do it?

    I have been trying to get better mpg and I seem to be stuck around 63 for the short trips that are my lot in life. :cry:

    Howdy. Special course, special driving. Check out the link in my signature to the top 20 and go to page 31 or so to see the original posting. Following posts answer most questions as to how/where. Bob Wilson has the most detailed explications of how to get the best mileage. Check out his postings.

    Suspension? Fender Mods? Doesn't look like that much poke, lots of camber? Thanks! Looks great

    Hey guys, just joined the forum and wanted to make my first post. Just got some 17" DR33's for my THREE.

    If anyone is interested in the stock setup from my THREE please feels free to PM me!

    I wish I could report on any MPG loss but I have not had them long enough to make an assessment. Has anyone else noticed a reduction with size and width of wheel tire combo?
