Warning! 15" wheels for the Malibu sedan do not fit on the Maxx. I ordered 205/70R15 snows on 15" wheels to get the taller tire (besides, 16"steel wheels were not available from Tirerack) My reasoning - The Sedan LS comes with 16" alloy wheels just like the Maxx. GM likes to use the same parts across as many vehicles as possible and the 205/70/15s had the same diameter as the 215/60R16. (Kurtamaxx had pointed this out) Stud spacing and offset are the same for both cars. My dealer even said the 15" wheels should work. SO, it should be an even swap. WRONG! I made the mistake of unwrapping all of the tire/wheel sets before trying on the right front. I couldn't kick myself hard enough when the wheel mount face would not reach the stud plate because of interference with the brake calipers. DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!
Best case I'm out $210 for shipping each way and a $60 "unmount" charge. The tire/wheel package was only $460 to start with.
