There's a picture of a Prius with the Eco Drives on the main page's flash images.

Click on PRODUCTS --> RAYS WHEELS
Click on Eco Drive in the left nav bar.

CE28 ECO DRIVE
15 inch: 4.6kg (10.1 lbs)
16 inch: 4.9kg (10.8 lbs)

Toyota OEM Rim

I'm quiet surprised that Volk made rims specifically for the Prius...

But damm! those are some seriously light as wheels... 10 pound wheel with air in... only 32 pounds.. really really light!

Wow. Everyone really is into the whole green thing now. I would never expect aftermarket companies to come out with parts specifically for green cars. Its good that these cars are getting the attention they deserve. Eventually these type of cars will be the future of the automotive industry.

Not a bad idea, pretty smart of Volk Racing to do this since the Prius is nearly everywhere now, exactly 1 million and growing! and you can be sure a lot of those 1 million Prius owners could be looking for high end wheels from a brand like Volk.

Even if it was designed for a Prius 16x7 wheels arnt bad track wheels!

esp if they only weight in about 10lbs.. man these are super light wheels.

I've decided to go from 16" stock wheels on my Prius V two model to 17X7 ENKEI RPF1 wheels at 14.6 lbs. each @ $200. + tax. I could not find a lighter wheel in the $200. price range. SSR wheels are a lot heavier. At over $500. each the Volk rims are absurdly expensive.

I want a wider tread to take advantage of my chassis stiffening upgrades.
