Shouldn't this be in the Trading Post forum?

Also, only 17" wheels have hubcaps. They don't make 18" steel wheels with hubcaps.

Those are 2LT Chrome Tech Aluminum Wheels.

Edit: Some posts that I have found suggest that there are some of those that are the hubcap type, but some aren't. If you have them, I'm not sure where to get them. I checked the gm warehouse sites and they don't even have them listed.

The ONLY reference to 18" hubcaps are in -some- posts, but some say that theirs are aluminum, which is what GM has them listed as.


However, they have the -appearance- of 2LT Chrome Tech Aluminum Wheels, so that is where you should start your search. This topic belongs in the Trading Post though.


Check here on page 19: https://www.gm.ca/media/vehicles/current/chevrolet/malibu/Malibu_Brochure_Eng.pdf

Those are 18", but they are chrome-clad aluminum. Are you positive that you have hubcaps? Can you take them away from the wheel? Chrome clad aluminum are NOT actually hubcaps. If you cannot separate the front from a wheel, then they are not hubcaps.

Thank you for answer.

No, I can`t take it from wheel.

I`ve called about 20 junk yards and etc.

There is lot of 17`, but on 18` inc - NOTHING .

Thanks.

The only place you will find a cheaper one possibly is eBay. And even if you do it won't be perfect, most likely curb rash.

My best bet would be to see what your dealer could do. The advantage of building a relationship with the dealer is that they tend to give you a lot closer to their price rather than MSRP.

You guys gave this way too much benefit of the doubt. That is clearly an 18 inch chrome tech aluminum wheel. There's no such thing as an 18 inch steelie with hub cap sold on the Malibu in the US or Canada. If there was, they certainly wouldn't make it look exactly like an existing aluminum wheel for the same car.

If you could afford the car, you should be able to afford to replace the wheel. If you get a cheap knock off, it's going to look like 3 good wheels and a cheap knock off... on a $25k-30k car.

Seem to have found it after some searching for you.

Part# H 6633
Located here, 4th from the bottom on that list. Though the center cap is Pontiac, it says it is for 08-12 Malibu's. Never seen it before though like others have said.

Is that what you are looking for?

-Edit-

One on Ebay too, listed as a Pontiac rim. I think they may have given you Pontiac based rims and popped a Chevy center cap in there, lol.
