    I'm leaving the hubcaps on. They remind me that I need to stop and pick up a large pie to go…:D

    The wheel covers through a Toyota dealership likely rival, or surpass, the cost of aftermarket alloys.

    I'd like to have a completely different looking hubcap. I was hoping the 2017's, or maybe the 2008 teams will have something different.

    2008 teams?? That should be 2018 model. :LOL:

    Maybe the new remodeled Prius v will have an attractive looking hubcap... whenever it comes out.

    Can't be.

    But if that's true, I'm pulling mine off, and selling them on eBay! ;)

    Does anyone have the exact specs of the 17" touring rims? I'm thinking about replacing the stock rims.

    I'm thinking that the wheels under those covers are looking pretty good... especially since I thought there was just flat stamped metal hiding there.

    I popped out the center cap from the plastic hubcap and affixed it to the center hole using 3M trim tape.
    Stayed on during 75 mile commute today.

    Does anyone with the hub cap removed have issues with rocks or debris flying in? Co workers Subaru WRX had a large rock that flew in there in an on ramp and destroyed the wheel and tire. He had to get a new wheel and 4 new tires (AWD) because of that.

    Wait what: the wheel cover has a centre hub cap? That is interesting.

    I finally lost a hubcap to a tire change shop (they didn't return the one good tire, either). So I am finally printing a wheel cap for my 2016 Prius Two with 55 mm center bore rims. The file is on the SLA polymer printer now. Here is the design from TinkerCAD, and the file prepared for printing in Chitubox. Tomorrow morning I will post a photo of the finished cap. I designed it so I could print the logo to insert, if I want. Cost is about $0.89 per cap.

    Looks like a useful addition. You could go into the center cap business...

    And here is the final prototype for fitment. You can just see the indentation for the logo. I have redesigned the logo so it can be printed a different color and pinned to the cap with glue. The design file is shown also. I will be printing the logo in gray for my color scheme.
