    Hey, at least these don't have the Harley logo on them... or they'd be hundreds of dollars. :ROFLMAO:

    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:[/QUOTE]

    Obviously I would prefer the center caps that DavidA has. I could not justify the price which was around $80 even on ebay. Hell even a Prius hubcap can go for $50 on ebay with shipping. Was planning on selling all 4 of my Prius hubcaps but I have not got around to it.

    I wouldn't say the Prius 3 silver center caps are ill fitting they just ride on top of the rim vs. flush with the exterior of the center cap. Once you take your Prius for a spin centrifugal force, inertia and probably some kinetic energy lock them into place rock solid. All it takes is a short drive around the block and they are locked into place.

    I keep wondering why they changed the groove location, because they can?
