    Just picked up my '21 XLE! Woohoo : ) Thought I'd share a quick pic. Thanks for the intel pre-purchase, helped me choose this trim / year.

    Now to put 100,000 miles in short order...

    Noice color too. Are those rims the real thing (not plastic); I think so?

    Thanks! They are the 15 inch alloys (not plastic hub caps) that come with the "Premium" package.

    Personally think 17s look better, but I really wanted a sunroof. However, now driving on the 15s they feel really comfortable and give a plush ride - I now understand why 15s are part of the package.

    They will give you a little more mpg too. Did you go for the option of the spare tyre ?

    Anyone sus out the part no for those rims? Maybe one of these two:

    42611-47450

    42611-47440

    @Elektroingenieur ?

    Funny, as rim-deprived Prius owners, how we drool over a simple, nice-looking rim without plastic... :cautious:

    They don't have the option of having a spare tire here from what I could tell, they provide a tire pump and sealant kit instead.

    Yea, I'll just buy the spare wheel kit later if I feel it's needed.

    If you don't mind me asking...what are the XLE's running as far as 'out the door' price? I'm not sure I want to know...(y)

    Still no part no’s though. This seems strangely elusive. :confused:

    likely “unobtanium” (big $’s) anyway; I should be careful what I wish for. :rolleyes:

    I got mine for $7k below MSRP, tbh, near or at MSRP I wouldn't have bought a Prius.

    You might be better off getting some 15 inch Rays / Volk wheels that are super light and also look good. If these didn't come with the car, I'd get some aftermarket ones.

    yeah. Even aftermarket wheels. I like them. But not $1,000 for a set like them.

    I snagged a set of (15”) PIP rims (2012~2015 Plug-In Prius) for $400 USD, they’re nice looking too, maybe a little out-of-step with 4th gen. Have yet to use them though. Might end up as classy snow tire rims.
