    Hi PC,

    This came to me in my sleep last night. My Habanero prius would be even more unique with a set of Takata green wheels from Volk Racing. This color Takata Green is special order for the CE28N 15x5.5 Hope to have them put together by Decemeber :)

    I'm not sure about it either:

    Tough to get a perfect rendering in Photoshop, but this should be close.

    looks pretty cool to me!

    do it.

    I would get some bigger wheels though. maybe 16x7 or 15x6

    I have all my suspension work done at Auto Innovations in Milpitas; Steve and Orlando are awesome. They are. a supplier for Rays/Volkwheels and do great work for very reasonable cost. I went with Rota wheels which have replicas for a fraction of the cost. Wheel Dude in Fremont is good too from what I hear.

    I ended up putting white 16x7 Rota Grids on my car and love them. 14lbs before tires mounted. Takata Green or pink was a consideration but white was screaming my name when I pulled the trigger. Great price and super easy to replace should they get damaged; dashed; etc.

    I say go for it. Black and silver are just too boring on cars.

    Wow. Those look like 16s or 17s. The drop looks good too.
    Thanks!

    I did a lot of this "photo shopping" for a few weeks before I pulled the trigger on my new wheels. Definately helped narrow down the style, size and color. I ended up with Rota Grid 16's, you can see the size comparison and drop on my car in the Aftermarket Wheels thread on this forum.

    Toyota meets Dr. Seuss.
    All you need to do to complete the look is a large plastic flower in reds and blues, and a 6-foot antenna with 3 45-degree bends.

    Still.....
    It'll be easy to find in a parking lot. :)

    The price is fair. Considering they are limited, new, and also in 16.

    These wheels might be a good choice but also hard to find ;)

    That's why I went with Rota; knockoff's yes, but if you curb them, stollen, etc you paid a fraction of the price for very similiar looks. If you care about branding and having baller wheels the Rota would be out of the question. I believe the Rota version of the CE28N are a bit heavier though (maybe 16-17 lbs?). The Enkei RPF1's are nice and comparable in weight to the CE28N. I would have gone with RPF1's if they had the special chrome finish, but I couldn't find any easy.

    Rota gets a bad rap from the tuner community, but you know what, they've been around for a minute and hold up very well for a daily driver. I even roll mine with the Rota center caps too, no shame in my game and I have money in the bank to spend on other mods. As they say, "I love Haters". ;)

    sounds like a great idea, Habanero is a tough color to match rims with.
