Welcome in to the TOC.

If the locking wheel nuts are OEM, then Toyota maybe able to help, if not there are soem tools you can use to remove it.

Not sure what you mean about "what size can I replace with" Are you thinking of larger tyres, wider tyres, smaller???

It depends on the width of the rim, a wider tyre will usually be more expensive, have less contact patch on the road (less grip, especially when wet / snow etc) Is there a specific reason you want to go to 205?

Prius use low rolling resistance tyres to get best MPG, putting wider tyres on defeats the object to be honest
