Post 2 Malibu Family

Hey everyone! I just brought home my 2011 Malibu 1LT. Taupe Gray Metallic, black interior, 43,000 miles, 4 cyl. This is actually my second Malibu. I married into a lease on a 2011 1LT Imperial Blue metallic with black interior. Prior to the Malibu my wife had a 2008 G6 and I had a 2010 Nissan Sentra (okay car but too uncomfortable to drive and too small for my needs). I found this forum to be quite helpful as I was shopping around for my 'Bu. No major plans to mod, just need to take care of some paint scratches on the hood and trunk.

Those are some bright a$$ rims! I wonder if somebody polished those up, or if they came liek that? Or is it just the way the picture is? They look like the stock ones I had on my Malibu, Just really bright! lol! And that is a very nice car!

I think it is just how the light is hitting them, look at the wheels on the other car in the background, they look really bright too, almost white.

Okay here's the story on the wheels...when I was looking at the car at the dealership I noticed the wheels were beat up pretty bad with scuff marks, scratches, and even yellow paint that rubbed off from a curb (the car was a rental). Of course that was a big turn off for me and I didn't want the car unless they would give me a different set of wheels. Instead they had them refinished by a local wheel shop. After the refinishing they look more like a silver instead of the stock two-tone graphite-like color. Long story short... the new color and the angle of the sun make them look so bright!
