    Hello Everyone,

    I am the proud owner of a "new" (to me) 2012 Prius (trim 5). I got a great deal on it with only 19k, and included accessories like the tow hitch, lighted door sills, lower door moldings, rear bumper applique. It is a sweet little ride. Glad to be part of the family...now to start modding.:cool:

    Ok, to begin your MODs, Package 5 17" wheels and tow hitches don't go together. You can sell me the 17" wheels and buy some 15s that will be more suitable for your tow hitch.

    PM me to sell.......:)

    Thanks PriusNP

    JC91006, the tow hitch will be used for the bike rack. When I swap out the rims to these, I'll sell you the orig 17":

    Congrats & welcome! I see that you have pop-up headlight washers. In what package are those included?

    Five. They are included if the car has led headlights since they don't give off heat out the beam like halogens and HIDs do to aid in helping to melt frost, snow, ice etc.

    Congrats on the new car and best of luck to you! Like the wheels.

    If you think your wheels look sharp, look at these 17"s that are on mine. Came into the dealership with them already on the car and 17" Wheel Placard on the door post.

    Part of a option that was added at the "distribution point". Listed on sticker with a price of $1799.00 Included LRR Michelin Primacy MXM4 P215/45R17 Tires.

    Those are some of the best aftermarket wheels I've seen on a Prius! I prefer the "factory" look ... those wheels go so well with the car that they look like they could be a factory option.

    They are actually factory wheels but are not options you can buy. Strange. It's a TSS wheel, available in the Gulf States only, as part of the limited TSS package. Ron here got lucky and somehow they were on his car when he bought it.....when he gets tired of looking at them, he'll sell them to me.
