    Installed new tires, bought from Amazon for $37 each and free shipping. They are Nankang SP-9 175/65R15 and the ride is a lot better than the Hankook they replace. So far I have done 300mi and the ride is significantly quieter and smoother. The mpg so far is around 52mpg which is a mild drop but it’s to be expected with new tires. They have a 560AA UTQG and a 50,000mi warranty. Hope they last because they are a steal for $37.

    I just took off the nasty license plate frames (with the advertising) and replaced with a simple black silicone plate. I also got flat clear shields for them to keep the tags from being ripped off but the screws are not long enough (It was raining while putting the frames on and I noticed the clear cover started fogging up - so I might be returning). My Prius C only had two holes drilled in so I only used two screws but it looks cleaner and less crowded with the screw covers on. I also got a cup inverter (not sure I'll ever use it), rain guards for the side mirrors, and ordered a custom solar panel for the hood (still going back and forth on materials (I realized a transparent backing might not be the best option so I have to have another part made to see how mounting will work). I'm still going back and forth on Cargo box on a trailer hitch or on the roof.

    Where/how do you connect the 12 volts? Now that it is installed would it be better to install usb ports rather than a 12v outlet? I've been looking to add real usb ports to my prius for over a year.

    I tapped off the OEM 12v outlet behind the dash. It is a 12v outlet with an Aukey USB adapter plugged into it.That way I can plug in another 12v accessory if I need to.I did not want to pin myself down to it being only a USB port.
