My '06 Malibu Maxx's new wheels

When my wife got a new car, I kept her Malibu Maxx. It's a great car, and my daily driver while the Camaro gets out on weekends and nice days.
I had to get rid of the hubcaps and get some nice alloy wheels. I went with American Racing's model AR896, in a machined finish with anthracite accents between and behind the spokes. I decided to go with a 17" size, since this car gets used for hauling, and I still wanted a nice ride. The tires are Falken 225/50-17.
What a difference a nice set of wheels makes!
Oh yeah, I also de-badged the body, and blacked-out the front bowtie for a cleaner look. Hope you guys and gals like it!

Nice. Why you took the emblem off your car?

The bowtie is just too big for me. It's still there, just blacked out to make it more subtle. I like a clean, black grille.
