    *All items SOLD*

    The wheels are by MB Wheels and made specifically for Discount Tire/America's Tire. The wheels have a much more aggressive offset so the wheels do not tuck into the wheel well as far as the OE wheels and provide a more flush look. The wider wheel also aligns the sidewall in a more vertical fashion so handling is enhanced. I noticed quite a bit of difference over the OE wheels. Lug nuts and wheel locks included.

    Specs
    Diameter: 15"
    Width: 7"
    Bolt Pattern: 5x100/114
    Offset: +38mm
    Weight: 16.3lbs

    MB Wheels Viper custom rims

    The tires are Michelin Energy Saver A/S (T) 195/65/15. They list for $123/ea. at Discount Tire. These tires have 8.3/32nds tread left. They start at 9.5/32nds. They are essentially still new. This combo would be great to run for your summer setup so you can use your OE wheels for winter traction. The Energy Saver A/S is the most fuel efficient tire for the Prius in North America and offers 2-3mpg more than competitors (including the OE tires) while providing good tread wear (65,000 miles) and decent braking ability.

    Deep but I need to make a trip down there soon to meet up with Sean to fix my GenII headlights.

    I can take more close up pics if you like. The wheels are in perfect condition with no scratches or curb marks. You can also see the wheels in person at a local America's Tire Company. They regularly stock them. :)

    Price change to reflect tires being taken off the wheels and can now be sold separately.
