Frankly, even if they did, it doesn't seem worth it to spend $ on wheels on a car that has little value (esp. if it's on its original battery).

'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)
'06 Prius

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I must admit, I was just thinking about it - I needed new tires anyway, and if I could have picked up a set of "new car take-offs" or a set from a wrecked '18 where the wheels were all unscathed, for not a whole lot more money than I'd spend just for new tires... Well, I would have maybe liked to freshen up the look of my '11 a bit. :D

Unfortunately, I didn't see anything on CL or eBay in the brief time between deciding to buy and actually pulling the trigger.
