#3 of 5 Wheel Size vs gas mileage on Malibu 17" wheel
Jul 14, 2011 (8:11 am)
go to: http://www.americastire.com/dtcs/infoTireMath.dos
That will give you the RPM on wheel vs tire size. With a little math using proportion calculation ratio you'll see how many fewer RPMs, therefore distance (one RPM and tire travels 4.76' on the road for example) or 1,109.2 RPMs. Divide that into 5,280'. Then take the next tire size, do the same and see what the difference is. That will be a % which u can use to determine how much further or less travelled your tire is. Then you can calc the MPG!

If the dealer installed the 18" rims & tires on the vehicle, they should have also installed the correct gear for the VSS to match the wheel/tire combination.
#5 of 5 2008 New Malibu Wheel Covers
Jul 26, 2013 (1:56 pm)
My '08 Malibu LS has the plastic wheel covers, and they now have a lot of stains, sort of like rust, and I need a good cleaning method. So far nothing I've tried works. And if I scrub too hard, the finish wears away,leaving a bigger eyesore.
Anyone else had this issue? If there isn't a remedy, what would be a good rReasonably priced solution?
Thanks for your suggestions.
