I've had my 2016 Malibu Limited (Generation 8, according to this forum, I believe) since February of this year and I have already had a nail in both rear tires. About two months apart. Fortunately, the low tire pressure warning light came on both times when I was real close to home, so I drove it home both times and used a high performance tire plug kit to repair. Both plugs are holding perfectly. But, I think my luck has run out and I want to get a donut spare and a jack and lug wrench from a local junk yard to "supplement" the Inflator Kit. Will they know what size wheel and bolt pattern I need and what GM or other models have the same spare tire? Anybody know what junk yards are getting for this combo? (I suspect the demand it up!!)

Thanks in advance for any help!!

You can get the kit on Ebay for around $250-300. Im looking for a kit local myself. I keep a full size spare but it to tall for the hole. It'll get me by till I get the kit

It should. Especially if they have the same brake code.
