What is the biggest rim size in terms of width and diameter i can fit on a prius before i need to do any major modifications?



Maybe along the lines like that ?

When you say something along the lines like the one above, I will assume you want your Prius ride height to be similar to it. Well we can safely say that going any bigger than a 18 inch wheel with that sort of stance will cause rubbing. Width, can't go too wide on these, they were mainly built to be a A to B car. 9 inches wide is what i've seen the widest on a Prius

so 18x9

18x9 seems pretty wide, and would lower the Prius fuel economy by a lot, giving it heavy wheels and a such a width that isnt needed on the Prius.

Id just go for the volk only prius made wheels only weighing in at 10 LBS each.

No really, how is your MPG after those huge wheels were fitted? I did not know that the R8 had the same offset as a Prius? I hope you got a great deal on them, lovely wheels in their own right!

No really, have you measured your mileage after installing those wheels? I had no idea that the Prius had the same offset as an Audi !!!! Hope you got a great deal on those wheels, they are lovely to look at.
