    I know it’s a Prius, but, I can find barely anything. Maybe 2-3 cars. One with TSLA wheels, another with one other kind. I’ll post mine when I figure out what I go with. I have the stock 19’s on my 24’ Prime. Chrome/black. Not feeling them

    Been wondering the same thing. Hopefully this thread is the start of good things to come.

    Bought Voxx Lumi wheels from Discount Tire in 17". They ride great, and although am not a huge fan of the OEM tires, will eventually swap those out for quieter/sportier tires. To me, they look similar to the 19"s OEM...have had great compliments on them!

    Sweet keep them comin! I may honestly do Plastidip and wheel spacers lol until I find the right wheel and fitment. I’m thinking an 18 or 19x8 +30 or +40 with 225/45 or so should be a good fit but no good data yet. Plus I sometimes drive on a dirt road and twisty roads and need SOME clearance for the suspension to work

    I was basic, I got steel rims and factory sized Michelin x-ice snow for my SE this winter.

    I'll stick to the factory tires in the spring too, since they're ecopia all seasons, which I've used for a few years on my other car in a different size. Great Bridgestone tires.

    But I did consider getting alloys for my winter tires. Just to not worry about rust on the rim. But, winter driving, I figured it's easier to worry less about them getting messed up by a pothole or ice chunk, or not seeing a curb properly etc.

    Tire place didn't give me winter lugs though. I should have been clear about wanting them. Oh well next winter.

    It's a Prius forum. Most people here are more worried about their MPGS. :whistle:

    I've got a set of 15s x 7 with the right bolt pattern off a Honda that might fit, but they probably wouldn't clear the calipers. It helps knowing the OEM offset and hub diameter too.

    Does anyone know what the weight of the stock rim is? I have the LE
    I want to change them for something lighter for MPG of course.

    Lol, so true. I came from the VW world where the wheel selection was pretty much unlimited. I'm struggling to find some BBS wheels that I like and will work with the Prius. Hell at this point I just want a better tire for the stock 19" wheel to replace the crap tier Toyo's that came on the car but there's nothing out there.

    I can personally recommend Braid wheels. I had a ton of issues finding wheels that had homologation for Prius in Europe, and they pretty much manufacturer set as a custom order. They were not even all that expensive compared to "better alloys" like Work Wheels (Braids were slightly cheaper than that).

    As a summer set I ordered a different set of wheels a bit lighter, sadly much more expensive, but I guess they will be really comfortable (even more than Fullrace A TCT).
    Can't wait to swap wheels and wrap them in Michellin Primacy 4s.

    Wheels dimensions are 6,5x17, ET40, 5x114,3 - they are the same size as stock 17" would be on less equipped model.
    They would look sweet in black, but I wanted to brighten the wheel arch area as 17" would get you more "black area" as tire wall is a bit thicker.

    Does the wheels center bore fit snugly on the hub?

    I did not change wheels myself, but I was there when they swapped wheels for me and everything went smoothly, they fit perfectly (dimensions wise).

    Not my car, and I don’t have the specs yet. But I thought it looked nice
