Anyone looking to sell their base CT200h's 16" stock rims with TPMS? I will be looking for a set of rims for next winter to put winter tires on, and if I can get the stock 16" ones, all the better.

I may be selling my stock 17" ones. We get 17" as our stock here in the US. I won't know until June/July though.

I believe Audi TT and VW Golf rims have the same bolt circle and similar offset check with tire rack.

I'm going to take the TPM sensors off the stock rims and place them in a plastic tube I will pressurize using a schrader valve. I will keep the tube in the trunk - the system will be fooled into thinking the sensors are installed and I can change from summer to winter rims without the need for the dealer to reprogram the system.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

My thought was to go to a smaller rim (16") for winter tires. A little higher sidewall, better traction in snow (?), maybe less expensive tires.

In many European countries, the base model CT comes on 15" rims. With 195/65R15 tyres, MPG and CO emissions are better than a Prius. Comfort will be improved and tyres will be cheaper, too. Might be worth pursuing that, especially if you don't care about aesthetics.

Too late - as I said in another thread - I purchased a set of Michelin Primacy Alpine PA3's in the stock 17" size already. They had a sale on a couple of weeks ago where I got 4 for the price of 3, and since I couldn't get a set of 16", I decided to go with the 17" and let Lexus swap the tires off and on coming winter. That way I won't need another set of TPMSs.

Anyone know the specifics on the rim size? My owners manual says this is an acceptable tire size, but all the tire shops say that the 15" wheel won't clear the brakes. Nonsense - if the manual lists it, should work. I bet Prius wheels fit just fine
