    I have a 2016 prius gen 4.

    I am from the UK, toyota dealership quoted me £250 or so which is insane, I bought a set off ebay which were OEM (atleast they looked it) for £100 delivered to my door but gifted them to a friend.

    Now on ebay all I can find is scuffed ones from breaker cars for £150.

    Willing to pay up to £120 for brand new or pristine ones.

    I tried for hours and hours and cannot find any reasonably priced or even aftermarket ones.

    Anyone?

    Thanks

    Be careful, get ones that specifically say they are for your car and look like your covers, universal generally won't fit, difference is universal have deep edge grippers and specific or ones that fit have shallow gripping edge.

    I have a lightly-used set of OEM wheel covers that were delivered with my 2021 Prime Limited that
    I'm willing to sell but not sure what it would take to ship to you from the U.S.

    Out of interest do you have the same ones as I do (look at my profile pic to the left!)

    My 2016 is nearing 8 years old now and I’m still loving it but the wheel trims are a right mess now.

    Likewise it seems all but impossible to find some replacements.

    Toyota sell some direct via eBay which are 17” but they’re not like for like.

    my 2021 Limited was delivered with 15" alloy wheels and covers, so NO they are not the same :(

    Confused here, even my base Gen4 Prius Prime came with alloyed wheels. I bought metal wheels for winter and some wheel cover from a retail store (Canadian Tire). There are Prius sold with plain old metal wheels?

    Prior to 5th Gen, most Prius came with aluminum alloy rims plus plastic wheel covers, in particular the ones with 15” rims. A little unorthodox. The rims are molded alloy, but relatively utilitarian in appearance.

    There are a few exceptions, the 2012-2015 Plug-In Prius for example, has a nicer looking 15” rim, no wheel cover. Maybe the 4th Gen plug-in (Prius Prime) is also thus?

    The 16” and 17” rims I believe are all nicer and no covers.

    Then I guess the previous owner upgraded the wheels because this is what they look like (it's a zoom from a picture I took since they are stacked in the garage right now)

    I took the covers off when taking my wheels off the first time to find those nice alloy wheels behind them and never put them back on. I have three(one wasn't damaged when I bought the car) of anyone wants some.

    A buddy is selling his F150 Ranger project and is interested in this gen Prius as his new DD. The truck got new brake job and tis wheels but with the baby coming, he's getting a family car. The Prius neat aside from wheel scratches at the passenger side. He might be interested in a wheel cover set.

    I have them sitting. Getting new wheels and tires soon anyways. The stock wheels will go to storage then.

    Except for the centre cap on the bare rim?

    attached is my solution for a cool looking 15” rim, the stock rim from 2012~2015 Prius Plug-In, the set of four picked up second-hand from a PriusChat member for $400 USD, probably about the same price as genuine Toyota wheel covers.

    Mine was missing one when I bought it (didn't notice it until the first wash). $25 at the stealership just for one!

    Anyone tried changing the silver to black on a 2017-2020? I was thinking about it but they look like satin black and not gloss.
