From the photos I've seen, the IQ appears to have rims, which is definitely better than hubcaps. Even if it only offers hubs, use those as your winter tires, and get some nice aftermarket rims for your summers - that way you get the rims you want and don't damage them in the winter months.

If you were really budget conscious and having hubcaps saved you a couple grand, I'm sure there would be someone who would do it - anything is possible.
I never thought of things that way - definitely a good thought. If you wanted to save money, hubcaps would be the way, since rims can cost you a pretty penny these days. Also, you could always upgrade to a set of used aftermarket rims which would cost less than factory, plus personalize your IQ at the same time :)

I think it would make some sense for the iQ to have hubcaps. Scion, after all, is about customization, and most people ditch the stock rubber in favor of some aftermarket wheels. Every Scion except for the tC has come from the factory with hubcaps.

Personally, I hope it comes with regular steel wheels and hubcaps. That way, I will be forced to buy some nice new rims and slap some snow tires on the steelies. :-D
