About this Product
If you have a Generation III Prius (2010-present) with 15 inch wheels, you can pop off the UGLY wheel covers to release the alloy beasts underneath. Except - you'll have a hole in the center of the wheel that begs for a decorative cap.
These are based on precise measurements of Toyota part #42603-52110.
This one is plain, but only in the same way that a rich French Vanilla is plain. Paint it Fire Engine red, decoupage your Sweetie's picture on it, use it as a base for some kind of wheel sculpture...
Also fits Yaris, Vios
Nylon is NOT UV stable. For maximum longevity and downright good looks, you will want to paint this object. Acrylic paints with a glossy topcoat are a proven method of painting objects printed using Selective Laser Sintering.
