    Two different size tire and wheel combos. The HPPs are 16" while the LX Sport wheels are 17". To answer your question the tires are kept on the wheels.

    I may look into these in the future as the JC whitney ones are no longer available. This last set was installed some time around 2010.

    These look nice despite being a GM part..should fit the bill.
    Quick note for anyone deciding to purchase a set. They come FLAT. This means the measurement you may take from your cars existing CURVED interior pull strap will be incorrect if you simply measure from end to end like I did. lol Use a seamstress tape measure from end to end so you get an accurate reading.

    I will say though they are NICE quality. They come with a metal band that will span the length of the strap from behind the door panel.

    Despite getting the measurements incorrect I think I will still be okay with installing the ones I have purchased. I measured my existing door panel pull straps at 16" so naturally I ordered the 16" version (again not knowing these come FLAT). When installing the current ones I am using I need to bow them in a bit in order for them to fit, so this means the 16" flat ones may work and provide just enough bow to slip a hand behind it and grab it. I am okay with it not bowing out as far as it used to as it will allow one to utilize the armrest more anyways.

    I will get around to installing them and finding out if they in fact do work out for me some time in the future.

    I saw door straps in LMC Truck (I think for 1973-1987) for the full size square body chevy trucks. I just don't know what length they were. I was giving some thought to figuring it out and seeing if they will fit 4-door CV/MGM

    Nice! Good info above about measuring the straps.

    G-Bodys; I don't remember my Malibu having straps. Must have had them in the Olds and Buick G-Bodys.

    I tried looking for videos about the g body door pulls but everything I find looks different lol. This goes along with what you are saying.
