    Just got them installed today and I'm ecstatic with the way they turned out. Einbach 1.5' lowering kit is coking in next week as well as my Thule cargo rack set up to finish the look. If the forum has any questions feel free to ask.

    Pictures of the roof box setup would be good. Looking at getting a Thule Touring 200 (400 lites) box myself.

    28 pounds for the single piece wheels. 35mm offset so 10mm push to the outside from OEM. What tire you put on? Section width, Revs per mile ect. for comparison to OEM.

    Nice color match.

    You've got a good eye. It is a Norton, but it is an 850 Commando. It has the "isolastic" frame, the successor to the Featherbed.
    I bought it in 1975 when they went out of business. Still have it and ride it regularly in good weather.

    Well done you! I'm just a little bit jealous, even now. :D

    Love the wheels! I was looking at getting them in 18s but I’m stuck on getting a set of Niche wheels.

    One question though. When I got my quote from discount tire direct it says the lug pattern is 5x114.3. I thought the Prius was 5x100. Do you happen to know what you have so I don’t order the wron pattern?

    The prius is 5x100 with a 54.10 center bore. So if you are running an aftermarket wheel, use hub centric rings. I had to get ones custom made for like 8 bucks for 57.10 ---> 54.10.

    Thanks for the info. I knew they were wrong about the lug pattern. Where did you get the hub centric rings at?

    Hub Rings / Spigot Rings for Wheels from USA $6.25 / pcs - HubCentric-Rings.com
    They do not keep 5710 to 5410 in stock in the US, so it took about 24 days to get mine. 57.10 is just what the rotiform blqs use, so depending on the hub size for your wheels you could get them faster. Don't bother with the aluminum upgrade, you don't need it

    Looks nice! (y) Any idea yet on how the larger wheels affect MPG?
