And I thought I was the only one. I was somewhat shocked to find alloy wheels behing those cheap covers. Not the most attractive rims, ok, but better clean than the cheap wheel cover look. Why did they bother? I could understand if they were full covers to remove drag, but that's not the case.

I know what you mean about "tough decision". I went from an 1999 Explorer, in great shape, to the Prius. The hatchback does allow me to carry lots of stuff that would fit in the Explorer, but there are limits. I think about those limits each time I put gas in the Prius and I look at my credit card receipt. The limits just fade away. I still have access to the Explorer because I sold it to my neighbor who is using it for one of his kids.

The wheel covers are there to minimize drag. The engineers try to save 1/10 of a gallon.
