Tires/Rims for stock 2010 Toyota Prius

I purchased it in June '09. Yeah I like it a lot, it looks so much better than the old one! The old one looked like its for old people -_-, the new one is similar but looks much sleeker.

As for a Yaris, what wheel size do you guys use? Do you guys have any like interior mods you did like lighting or something? I'm really interested in getting rims.

I know Prius isn't exactly fast, but I sure do want to make it look really cool!

The (stock) Yaris isn't exactly a sports car either but some of the forum members manage to get some performance out of their car, after doing some mods.

I have 15" stock wheels right now.

Look in this section

for everything wheels

Currently I have the stock 15" wheels. So what rim size do I get? Would it be bad if I got bigger wheels, does it effect the car like hurt it anyway? Sorry I'm a complete beginner on this stuff.

It's ok. You may want to start a new thread in the wheels section. You will get MORE feedback than just here. ideally you want smaller and lighter. Just my preference, i like 16s and 17s....even though some say they are heavy and you can feel every bump on the road/freeway.....

Tires/Rims for stock 2010 Toyota Prius

Maybe the wheels are similar, but I'm interested in replacing my tires and getting rims for my stock ones (15")

If I decide to do that, what size tires should I go for, is 15" ok or should I get bigger wheels, what sacrifices will there be.

For rims how much do they run and what size do I know to get.

Thanks!

not to be rude, but a Prius is 5 lugs, we are 4. Just something to remember.

What do you guys mean five lugs, as in five passengers?

the bolts to hold the wheels. You have five bolts as opposed to 4 bolts like the Yaris has...

Oh ok, so that means when purchasing a rim to make sure it can support five bolts? Interesting, even when they are both the same tire size.

What are the benefits of having a bigger/smaller tire? Also if I want to get a bigger tire is there any adjustments I need to make to the car?

you can ask Cali Yaris aka Garm, I believe he is able to get SSR wheels at a good price.
