I'm revising my review of this wheel. Initially I was quite upset about the fitment. At 7" wide with 205mm tires mounted to it, and a 37mm offset, it looks like the front tires wont clear the fender lips if the car were to be lowered (2014 Prius C). I plan to lower this car someday. However after driving around all summer (still at stock height), I did not run into any issue. And the handling of the car is VASTLY improved. The standard 175mm tires on 15x5" wheels feels like the car is going to tip over on a corner, but with the wider 17x7s on 205mm tires (45 aspect ratio) the car is way planted. I suppose when / if I lower this car I will solve that problem down the road, but for now I think it is fair to say that the improved handling is WAY worth it, so I wanted to revise my previously harsh review of the fitment to be fair. :) And as I said before, these wheels look FANTASTIC for the cost.
