    Hi all,

    I really would rather touch something other than the stock steering wheel while driving. The two-town "euro" style WheelSkins look nice in concept, but I'm worried how they'll look wrapping over the two lower silver-colored support spokes. Has anyone tried this? Any pictures? I'd like to see how the "two tone" seams align with the location of the four spokes. Has anyone tried removing the silver cover plates of the two lower spokes, putting on a wheel skin, and then putting the silver cover plates back on top?

    Or has anyone found a simple slip-on wheel-cover that fits the Prius C wheel?

    I have a (dark) blue Prius C and am really jazzed about a comfy wheel cover that looks cool and also brings a touch of blue into the cabin.

    thanks!

    I've got a friend who might be looking at a c, and who gets cold hands. Has anybody looked into which Toyota or Lexus models can have heated wheels (I think a Landcruiser can, don't know about others) and whether any of those can be made to fit (assuming probably it needs a different clockspring too)?

    Thanks,
    -Chap

    I wanted to get one of those nice Japanese wheels but they don't have the voice button on them?

    it looks that way. maybe just outer ring wraps like these will give a similar look.

    Is that black and cobalt or charcoal and cobalt?

    I got a black one, but I'm thinking its too dark for my liking so might switch it...

    I think that the replacement wheels only really include the inner frame and hand-grip area... the silver covers you see are what you would supply from your current vehicle... just use the same ones (with the voice button etc.) off your current wheel.
