    its good to not see 77$ for 4 caps, but do you have 15" or 17" wheels, two different sized center caps.

    Oh damn, I have the 15” wheel, and I already ordered them, are these the right one for the 15” wheel?

    I agree , it's definitively 21.95 $ U.S for 1 cap ... not a set of 4 .. ask the vendor to be sure ... but it sounds too good to be true for a set.

    Update.... seller said he couldn’t see where it says “set of 4”....

    I just ordered three more ... not happy with eBay customer service.... but I’m sure that’s just me being frustrated that I couldn’t get a deal that sounded to good to be true.

    Will the Prime plastic wheel covers fit on my regular 2016 Prius hatchback? I like them better than my "pizza slice" OEM hubcaps .

    I've been tempted to remove the factory hubcaps, and just go bare naked like you guys. But I am damn well sure that I will end up scratching those wheels on a curb.

    First, don't get near curbs, or for that matter, nose the front into anything. Costs thousands to fix even a minor crushing of the front.

    Without the plastic frisbees on the wheels, you can check the air pressure and fill the tires - not possible with them on. Also, they can't fall off or get stolen. When off, they can't be damaged. Trade or sell the car years from now, and the wheels will look brand new if you press them back on. I can't see the aerodynamic benefit with the discs on the wheels unless you're driving 80+ mph all the time.

    I asked my dealership to not install the wheel covers when prepping the car. I got an odd look, but no worries about scratching the alloys if they were never on. They come to the dealer off the truck in plastic bags on the deck, next to the charger cable, also in a plastic bag.

    When I picked up the car, I went around my new Prime and popped in all four wheel center caps before I even opened the door. The saleslady said she'd never seen anyone do that, or plan for that, ever. I also plopped in the WeatherTech driver's liner at the same time.
