    burnout,

    What exact tire size are you running ?

    Did you install a spacer for that bigger +48 offset ?

    I'm running 215/45-17 - the correct size to match the diameter of the factory tires. Fits great!

    No spacers, the offset is almost identical to the factory +45. I can't even tell the difference at a glance. The wheels supposedly sit 3mm further in the wheelwells now. Less dirt on the fenders, I guess. :)

    It was my first mod a few hours after bringing it home - I think the factory badges are a little shouty about it being a hybrid. Some day when most cars are hybrid/electric maybe they won't have to over-badge them as such.

    I did the same. Took the hubcaps off, front plate, and debadged. Way cleaner!

    I put Avalon wheel caps on it instead of the Konig caps and it looks more OEM DF1C80E0-D657-4237-8332-E23715587ADC.jpeg

    Did you do it yourself? I see Amazon kits to do it for about $60 or less. How much did you pay and how happy are you? Did you consider matte black as well? I'm still trying to decide...

    I had it done professionaly for $500. I was gonna DIY but it won’t last longer than 6m-1 year. Iam extremely happy with it. I only got gloss because all the other accents are gloss black. Are you in CA?

    THIS is the look I want! Very nice!

    Do you have the RSR prime specific springs or GEN4? Thanks!

    Would’ve loved 18s too I think that’s the sweet spot. But they come in 18x10 on next size for the 5x100 and I was able to snag these 17 for a lightening deal

    Yes how are the 17" wheels affecting your EV range? Obviously its also contingent upon how lightweight the wheels are....

    Sidenote - its amazing how much better the prime looks on a nice set of 17's.

    @triggerhappy007 @dalecooper - I'm getting approximately 8-9MPG LESS since switching to my new wheels/tires. I knew I'd take a hit but surprised at the loss. I drive almost exclusively on electric because my commute is 15 miles each way to work so I am still getting 110MPG on average so I didn't mind a small hit for a world of difference visually. I didn't compare OEM to new wheels but I'm sure I'm a couple of pounds heavier on each corner.
