Unfortunately for me (and you people, since I have too much time on my hands...), I did a number on my shoulder while trying to ride my bike over a cliff so I have been doing lots of "resting." That rest includes poking about and finding lots of good Prius information, including Darrell's site with various Prius modifications. One thing he had intrigued me and that was a pix of the Prius wheel without the chintzy plastic ring. It's beautiful naked:wub: Prius Wheel Trim I've searched PriusChat and found lots of back and forth, but no formal poll...so, what about it? Off with the ring, or "if it's good enough for Toyota, it's good enough for me."
