Car reviews - HSV - Maloo - R8 2-dr utility
29 Jul 2002
THE Maloo shares its wheels and tyres with the ClubSport, which are "Performance" five-spoke, 18-inch alloys finished in Capri Silver and wearing 235/40 ZR18 Bridgestone S-O3 directional rubber. Manufactured by ROH, these alloy wheels have filtered down from the top of the HSV range over the past few years. They were first seen on the VT I GTS, before going on to the VT II ClubSport R8, various limited edition models like the Senator Signature 10th Anniversary, and now the ClubSport and Maloo. They are also now fitted as standard equipment to Holden's Monaro CV8, albeit in a different silver finish. Similarly, Maloo R8 and ClubSport R8 share the same wheel/tyre combination - R8-specific five-spoke, 18-inch alloys also finished in Capri Silver and shod with the same low profile Bridgestone S-O3 tyres. The jack, wheel brace and other tools are located in the cabin, in the small space behind the passenger seat.
