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 has the symbol of the Fire Service, the Maltese Cross, embossed in the top of the wheel cap. If you would like this Maltese customized with your IAFF local information, I ask for proof of union membership, and an additional charge.
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.
