the lug pattern should be 5x100mm, you having the loaded malibu it could be the 5x125mm. if you still have the factory aluminum wheels on there then you can either take one off and look on the back of the wheel you will have to look closely it will tell you though, or you can go to www. tirerack.com there website will navigate you through and give you the proper size. hope this helps. sorry not more specific.

engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some
error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer
needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the
further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light
indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer
noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.
