    I like em, I might do them to mines too.. Only thing that bothers me is the center and the 4 lug nuts. I might plasti dip them to make em blend in.

    Or, consider leaving the lug nuts chrome and adding chrome center caps... I think that would look great with the black rims. 08 prius.jpg

    Looks like you are driving on 4 doughnuts or bought a super cheap car that didn't come with anything. Why would you want this???

    Until I figure out which rims I want these look nicer than wheel covers imo. They will eventually also serve nicely for snows for those of use that live in climates where wheels and low pro tires aren't great year round.

    I agree, obviously, but ironically the chrome rings, chrome logs, and a center cap is probably cheaper than the oem wheel covers.

    What are you going to do about the holes in your fenders, where your badges came off?

    i covered the holes but there is tremendous air pressure coming out of them at speed. that popped the stickers off. so i want to know the why of that before i just re-badge it. in the meantime, it helps keep the car humble. i prefer the stealthy style. thanks.

    Most aftermarket wheel covers look like pie tins. I found these for $24 a set of four. I then put Toyota emblems on the center. Better than OEM image.jpg image.jpg

    Thanks robertmaria,

    Just installed fogs today... I think I'm done customizing the C. Ya gotta do some sort of modifications to these cars not only because there is so many around, but easier to spot in a crowded parking lot image.jpg image.jpg

    Nicer pics of your car and the front. Looks sharp on the white. What fogs did you install and was it a hard project?

    Just Chinese eBay ones $58.00 complete system. Also put laminX yellow pre cut vinyl overlays Pretty straightforward install. Fog lights independent of other lights meaning I can use my brights as well as fogs in inclement weather.

    Hi Danger, could not find my eBay link. Just took screen shot of eBay with current lowest prices.

    I went to the LaminX website to get yellow overlays. They don't have Prius C custom match, but the PriusV fog light overlay is perfect fit on their site. image.jpg
