That model Malibu is 5x115mm, NOT 100 or 125. 115mm is the diameter of the circle formed by the center of the studs. As such you do not need to know the distance between them, but you can find that using geometry if you need to. The important thing is that the unusual 115mm PCD is nearly, but not the same size as the VERY common 5x114.3mm bolt pattern. Any tire shop will tell you that the two are not interchangeable but in reality, they are close enough in tolerance to be mounted with insignificant effect. The stud moves so slightly it should not even yield, but remain in the elastic region. Some use hubcentric rings to force the wrong sized wheel to remain center on the hub, but it is possible to mount them without the rings and retain wheel balance (no vibrations) well into the 90 mph range. One might need to torque 1/4 turns in a star pattern and eye the concentricity, but I got it on the first shot. Plus the stock Malibu wheels are hubcentric, so if you want to go back it's no problem.

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.

What year models interchange with driveshaft 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500


Any 1999 or older model Silverado will interchange with the 2004. To be sure would need to know if you are looking for front or rear. If the front is for 6 lug wheel AWD, 6 lug w/o AWD, 8 lug. But either way all 1999-2004 will work.

Differential has gone bad in 91 Dakota(V6 auto.). I have access to 89 Dakota (V6 auto). Can I change out the entire rear-end. Can I put the axles from the 91 into the 89 to keep the 6 lug wheel pattern....


91 to 93 can have the same 6 lug pattern. the 89 is strickly a 5 lug. The axles from the 89 will not fit in the 91 differential. Yes it would be easier on you to change out the whole thing and change it to a 5 lug truck. Good luck, from a Chrysler parts employee.

Im trying to figure wat is the lug pattern


The factory Lug pattern on the Olds Custom cruiser full size (i.e. Caprice/ Impala) is 5 lug with 5 inch spacing also known as 5 on 5. The S-10, Camaro, and Chevelles are all 5 on 4 3/4 so they will not work. Any 5 lug Full sized Van or full sized GM pickup truck or Astro have the same pattern as the Custom cruiser. Additionally, Most Gm 64-96 Full sized body on frame cars have the same pattern of 5 on 5 (5x5) as the Custom cruiser. Hope this helps.
