    Hey all,

    now, my Prius has new alloys, grey ones in 16" with 195/55 16 Michelin Tyres.

    And, self designed, one-of-a-kind hubcaps, created just for me.


    What do you all think about the wheels and the self-designed hubcaps?

    Greets,
    Dominik

    These are 3D high quality gel and self-adhesive stickers. Absolutely UV-resistant, car wash resistent and can be removed without leaving any residue. They are no cheap film stickers.

    The Rims are from the company Platin, i think you wont know them in the US.

    Well, i have no idea how to change it.

    And its the same material then aftermarket hubcaps are made of.

    Oh yes. Can last way longer in electric mode before recharging. Lower fuel consumption, very much more silence while rolling.
