    Save your money to get a reasonably priced set of CT200H, Corolla S, or PiP rims.

    Yea well I'm waiting until my tires are worn before considering bigger wheels. Just wondering if the chrome ones look ghetto or not.

    I think the standard silver wheel covers would look best.

    +1, or take the covers off. No to the chrome.

    Not a chrome fan here either so another vote for silver. Its a matter of personal preference so decide what you really want. You can try to ask some photoshop experts to edit the wheels on your car so you can visualize the looks.

    I did a chrome trim on the stock rims. Attached are photos of before and after and what I used. I like the accent it provides now. I achieved the look I wanted with the stock rims. Also finally got a prius chat decal.

    Looks good. Thanks for posting the brand. For $16 it's worth a try. How long have you had them on? Have they gotten dirty and are they easy to clean?

    They have a anti-UV finish with a light coat of chrome so they pretty much will rinse clean easily. I don't use any harsh chemicals to clean my rims, just soap and water and a teri-towel lightly dabbed with WD-40. Only had them on a few days.

    I ordered a set of alloy wheels for Plug In Prius for my Winter Grey Prius Three. Along with chrome "hybrid" strip for base of doors. Nice silver look for my car dark tinted windows. Did also add the JDM mirror turn/puddle/road lights.
