quoted from Isaac

"The 'butterfly' is a plastic part located inside the air box that is recognizable by the small white flap in the middle. This is a very minor modification which has not shown any significant power gains but results in a deeper sound when accelerating it was placed there by Toyota to help MPG by reducing the amount of air that enters the engine & to keep the car a little quieter at RPMs below 3500."

If I were you, just save up for a nice set of rims you like instead of getting rims from another car. Cause I think that would look awkward when your sporting Ford rims with your Toy... thumbsdown

Unless you find the exact same looking rims but it's not from Ford and doesn't have the Ford emblem on the center cap...I guess go for it...
