I think most HSH and HSPH are perfectly content with the stock wheels (at least the ones that come with Limited editions). They look ok, the tires are ok (medium noise, medium drivability, good fuel economy, good longevity).seriously 150 views, no one on here has rocked an 18" wheel........no feedback.......wow amazing.......
I know exactly what you mean; dont get me wrong I love the ride handling and comfort of my ride, but it is just that I have a set of 18" rims that are 5x114.3 sitting in my garage and was contemplating rocking it on this car, but I love my comfort and efficiency way too much to sacrifice that for the looks.....Since you have not had any responses from HSH owners, ll chime in.
I dont have a HSH , have a 17 Sport 2.0T now but a few yr ago I had a Prius for a short time, I swapped the stock rims (15") for 17" low profile and the car looked great but I did loose MPG and the ride was a little noiser and harsh.
if you look on most of the Hybrid Forums you will find in almost all cases loss of MPG and noise/ride quality suffers when going to a larger wheel diameter. The noise and ride quality often times in the hybrid models is due to trying to keep weight down for fuel efficiency they cut sound proofing etc, especially in the Prius I owned, it was loud like a hollow box. I have driven the Sonata Hybrid and it is much nicer and comfortable IMO to the Prius.
