    Hi Pious! Congratulations! I am looking at an 07 Touring too. So how is the ride different? Smoother or sportier than regular? Thanks!

    Let us know how these tires ride. I have a '07 Touring Edition on order. The reviews for these Bridgestone tires at Tire Rack are all over the place, but the overall mean is not good. I thought the Goodyear Integrity's were bad and replaced those quickly. If the Bridgestones are not good handling tires, it would be a shame to put them on a Prius with an improved suspension. If so, I will try to swap them off the car before it leaves the dealer's lot and get a credit on the Turanza EL400-02's.

    Any Touring owners notice that the wheels have plastic covers on them? The alloys on mine are actually a gray color....

    Seven-spoke wheels, interesting. Just like in many of the early
    "concept" pix of the '04 Prius, which then came out with the six-
    spokers we know and love instead.

    I second that question. I remember reading that the Asian and European Prii have the same wheels, but they are cover instead of alloy rims. Can any 07 owner confirm that? Pics will be nice too.. :p
