On my GM WORKBENCH, it said spare tire not desired. I dont know why because I never said I didnt want one.

Spare is not an option on the SS. period.... Sorry the dealer should have known that. in act if you go to chevy's own website and download the specification sheets for the camaro it is listed right there as not available on the SS....

That's because that option is a default on all SS orders. You can't get a spare on the SS even if you wanted one because the 15" compact spare will not fit over the 14.4" rotors and Brembo brakes.

The 'Spare Tire' is referring to a 'Donut' type of tire... which doesn't come with the SS model due to the Brembo Brakes. The SPare (aka donut) wouldn't fit over/around/whatever the Brembos

the battery still goes there. not to mention it saves on production costs. it wouldnt be a smart move to change the trunk setup between v-6 and v-8 cars.

Will the goo ruin the sensor or is this a non-TPMS ruining goo formula? I'm not a fan of replacing a tire and sensor at the same time, although they tend to snap when you get a flat anyway.

In some searching for info on the sealant I found this.
Quote:
(5) The inflator kit includes a tire sealant canister, an air compressor as well as a pressure gage in one unit. The inflator kit can be used to inflate one or more tires regardless of whether the

vehicle has a punctured tire or not. The sealant of the GM sealant canister does not damage the TPMS pressure sensor, and the TPMS continues to function.
It's the kit for a Cobalt or a G5

because tire sealant goo and an air inflator aren't going to help if you have a blowout.

The stuff GM uses is safe for your pressure sensors. think about it, they wouldn't use something to ruin a part of the car and have to replace under warrenty... if thire equipment causes damage to another price of equipment then they would have to cover it under warrenty...
