Somewhere buried in all these posts, did the dealer check to make sure it was not just a bad tire?

Have they swapped sides with the tires, or even put tires on from another Camaro?

No, because I pull the belt straight out toward the upper part of the loop when I put the belt on.
You must be pulling the belt down instead of straight out.

I have a torch red Z06 and a victory red 2011 Camaro.
The torch red looks orange beside victory red.
Victory Red also replaced torch red on the Corvette for awhile.

I could afford a V8, but got the V6 because that is what I wanted.

IF you buy the 5 quart jugs at Walmart, and a WIX filter, you can change the oil in a V6 for $30.
I am using Valvoline synpower in my V6, so I can keep just one oil for all my cars, even the Z06.

Any fully synthetic oil that meets the GM spec.
Valvoline Synpower and Castol EDGE are two examples of oils that have now surpassed Mobil 1 on the standard wear test, and meet GM 4718M.
