Hello all! I just bought a rather rough-looking 2010 Prius yesterday. My son has a 2005, so I joined the forum a few months ago. Anyway, this car looks bad because of peeling white paint - I'm hoping to get Toyota to step up and take care of that. But there's another issue with the wheels and tires. It's got a set of four Pirelli snow tires, not really ideal for St. Louis. We usually get one decent snow a year. The car came from Indianapolis, where I guess there's a bit more snow - and salt, although it kind of seems inappropriate for there, too. So I am going to replace the tires - I like the price of the Douglas tires from Wal-mart. But the other thing is, the wheels have a lot of bubbling under the paint. I am thinking... I could keep this set of snow tires - they have decent tread still - and just run them in the winter months. (Heck, winter is right around the corner, maybe I should wait till next spring to replace.) I was thinking I could get a new (used) set of wheels and mount the new tires onto them. Then I'd have a set of winter tires as well. But I've been living for decades at this latitude without snow tires. So maybe the sensible course of action is: repaint the wheels I have, toss out the snow tires and get some new all-seasons. And either do that now, or what the heck, it's almost October, run the snows for the winter and see what that's like. I don't know, what do you think? Also, I don't have the wheel covers. I think I like the 2013+ with the black wheels and the goofy covers. Am I weird?
