    I just got my new 2012 Prius today and it is black. Yay!! I had planned to pop off the hubcaps and put on center caps and was shocked and excited to see that my alloy wheeled were black!!! I almost wonder if it will be too much black... And I'm wondering if someone could post photos of their black Prius with black rims and center caps??? TIA

    I was wondering how hard the center caps are to get off once you have them on, but I was told it's pretty difficult to get them off without potentially scratching your rims. I love the lowes center cap idea but I wanted the toyota branded ones. What can I say... I love my toyota!!

    Why do you want/need to take them off,interesting,anyway,carefully pry or remove wheel and poke from behind.I admit,Toyota caps might look better.I painted mine with Plasti-dip(along with the emblems)
