    I know this has probably been mentioned before but I couldn’t find it. I need 4 center caps for my stock wheels on my 2017 Prime. I took off those ugly plastic hup caps. Looks a lot better now. Thx, Ben

    Does anyone know if the previous gen prius center caps will fit? They're 1/4 the price of this.

    I think I found a set a few bucks cheaper on eBay, but it wasn't by much. (I bought them) You aren't going to find a set that is reasonably priced until there are Chinese-knockoffs, or someone sells their used caps.

    Pretty sure: there's a groove on inside rims that cap tabs lock into, and for 4th Gen, Toyota shifted that groove.

    Not sure: would there be a valid reason for this change, or just a bonehead move.

    I have the Gen 3 version of the 15" center caps on my 2017 Prius 2. Not a perfect fit but they work well. They market them as Gen 4 caps but are Gen 3 wheel caps. If you have the 15" Prime they will fit for around $15 on ebay.

    Do you have a link?
    It says 57mm, I think it's too big. I think 53 or 54mm might fit.

    “57MM 2.25 2 1/4 INCH 54MM YARIZ HYBIRD EMBLEM“

    Right, this quote is from the site, I’m assuming the 57mm is the outside diameter and the 54mm is the inside diameter.

    Starting in 05’, I always was on the hunt for center caps, have a bunch, most never gave a size, most were for 17” wheels.
    For the 17’ prime, I had been buying 1 3/4” knock outs for electrical panels and putting nylon plumbers tape around the circumference to enlarge and keep metal away from aluminum, then I tried the Yaris centercaps and was pleased, I’d suggest bookmarking the page and referring back if nothing else works.

    Not sure, but I think caps for any gen fit either 15" or 17".

    I know our 17" third gen caps also fit 15" (3rd Gen) PIP rims.

    I'll go check ours tomorrow, I've got tight-fit Corolla rims off the car right now, can measure with caliper.

    Sorry for being snippy up the page. Erm, I can keep my soul, we're good?

    4 Wheel Center Hub Caps fits Toyota 07-13 Prius 09-13 Corolla 07-14 Yaris | eBay
    I got mine a year ago for my 2017 Prius 2. These are what I got. Again not a perfect fit, they do not push in all the way but work perfectly. Once you take your car for a drive they lock in place. So they fit but they do not fit flush but you would have to get down on the ground and study the center caps to realize this. You can search center caps in this forum.I posted a pic of my 15" rims with center caps if you want to see what they look like.

    I've got those same caps from the same source. They aren't cheap, that's for sure. Until you ask your own Toyota dealer how much the same set is through them! They look great, though, and the fit is perfect. I asked the selling dealer to keep the wheel caps in the plastic bags and not install them at prep time. When my salesperson was showing me my car I popped them all in as I did the walkaround. She had never seen anyone do that in her 12 years in car sales. I took the next photo right after I did that. The other two close-up photos I took before I picked up the car.

    They do look great but not $80 great. I payed $7.80 with shipping for all 4 center caps. I had to check on ebay to see how much I payed for them.

    They were third gen caps though, somewhat ill fitting? Someone will hopefully get in gear, start turning out 4th Gen knock offs. Toyota keeps those guys gainfully employed, with their exhorbitant prices, for bits of chromed plastic. :cautious:
