Alright here it is. I have a choice or rims for my car if I want. I currently have the stock rims on my Malibu. I can get a set of stock GA GT rims which are 16'* and need tires for it. They are about 130$ each for new tires and I find that the rims look so much like my stock rims that I don't see the point. The other set of rims are 15'*, and I could put my current tires on those rims.
Here are a couple of pics of me being lazy and placing the rims in front of my car to get an idea.

First is the GA GT rims



Here is GA GT rim on front and my stock rims on rear.


Finally here is the other set of 15'* he has.





Before anyone asks I am not sure how much he wants for either set of rims.

Mike, I REALLY think the GAGT rims set that car off well, in fact the stock rims almost look mismatched to the car in comparison and I used to think that LS rims looked sharp compared to anything else.

careful, your'e gonna have me trolling wrecking yards looking for GAGT rims myself LOL

Well if I go with the 15'* they are custom rims, not sure how to spell the name I think it is Mangel or something like that.

They are made in Brasil ( according to what is stamped on the back of the rim, lmfao


Actually I was thinking it would be a Malibu LSGT

I think those are the best option. IMHO, with smaller cars, rims with more open space look better, and rims with less open space look better on bigger cars. These make the Malibu stand out, they make it look sportier too
