Not sure on the tires. My Dad put them on it before he gave the car to my son. I will ask him where he got them.

Doober is right, the base is part of the Hammer shifter from B&M.

My son likes the chrome IROC replica wheels. So, I'm trying to decide between 17" and 18". I'd like to see a G-body with with the 18" version on it. I don't want it to look "donkish". Here's a shot of what the 18's looks like:

there's a early 80's Monte here with the chrome Iroc's on it...they have to be at least 18's if not the 20's that they sell.....I just noticed where he lives the other day. I'll see if I can snap a picture for you Phil

btw....18's donkish....pshaw #-o

To look "Donkish" wouldnt that require lifting the car somewhat or in someway?.......I dont think that car would look that way cause 18" is almost the new 15"........

Re: Interior Update - 3/20/10

Well, maybe donk wasn't the right word. I just don't want it to be too "blingish" with big chrome rims. I've got it lowered about 1.5 to 2" all around (when I get the front springs installed), so donk definitely does not apply. My other concern is my son damaging the rims with the low profile 40 series tires.

RatMalibu, I LOVE your Malibu, so that in no way applies to you!
