They're all painted, I posted a picture of it somewhere. The center caps are gun metal as well. Not all on because I'm just that lazy.

Flake I shall. Thanks anyway Dan. I think I'm gonna wait for a z1 swap to tap me on the shoulder. I am excited about those rims, can't wait to make em look just like Ben's and tell everybody he stole the idea from me.

i just emailed the company about those rims for my Yaris, they said that everything is the same and "would fit perfect".

Can anyone verify? and could i use my current tires? if so, i need to lighten my wallet anyway!

While the bolt pattern (4x100) may be the same, the wheel size is not. Both the Yaris sedan and hatchback come with 175/65/14 Bridgestone Potenza RE 92's. The VX rims are 13" so you wouldn't be able to use those tires. The HX rims are 14" so that would be a solution.

It is unfortunate that the Yaris didn't come with the 165/65/14 sized RE 92's. Those are the LRR Insight OEM tires.

yes, this is confusing, but just a bit. Since i'm now in the low 40's in mileage, i'm assuming Toyota didn't want to let the vehicle get to close to the Prius mileage.

You can always use some 4x100 lightweight alloys. Search for the crappy wheel "FAQ" I made a while back.
