Re: Kevin's 2010 Malibu LT

So, I got the wheels on! At the bottom is a picture of a close up shot.

My next major mod will be doing the LTZ Dual Exhaust (which got put on hold recently, but I should be getting it before the end of this year)!






UPDATE 11/19/2010 --- Got the LTZ Grilles in!!

I finally got the LTZ Grilles in thanks to an awesome member here (thanks bud)! They look awesome with the white in my opinion. Here they are!

They look a lot classier than the chrome wheel covers for sure. I take it you got aftermarket wheel nuts? If yours came with the compact spare, you might want to make sure the wrench that came with the jack assembly fits those wheel nuts.

Yea, I just went to advance auto parts this morning and showed them the wheel. They looked up whatever they do in their system, showed a specific wheel nut, and voila! it was like $30 give or take for all 20.

And yes, the stock rims (for '10 at least; LS and 1LT trims) are 5-spoke STEEL rims with Chrome-looking hubcap covers.

The rims I bought were the 2LT ALLOY rims.


They're not bad looking stock rims (the steel with hubcaps) compared to some steels, but I just like alloy rims much much better. That and these are a little thinner and I always loved thin spokes (it reminds me of my 2000 Corvette with the thin-spoke wheels).

Looks great! Those brake calipers would look great painted.

Instead of putting a heavy stock exhaust on get a Magnaflow catback for the 6 cylinder.
