Factory warranty on new tires?

This may be a dumb question but, does the factory tires come with any type warranty. My back left tire keeps dropping to 22 psi. Going to get it checked out in the morning before my 400 mile journey back to PA in the morning.

When I picked my car up the right rear was leaking and found the valve stem was loose! Tightened it up no problem!

I have a nail in the back left rear tire... close to the sidewall.
I will have the tire replaced tomorrow or the next day, the car will be garaged until the tire is replaced and balanced. Does anyone know the exact tire SPEC to order for the left rear of a 2013 ZL1? I will check tirerack and some local wholesale shops near me in the AM as well.
Thanks all!!! for anyone would post the tire I need to order (cant hurt to make sure im ordering the correct part).

indeed I do. Just wanted confirmation. Thought I read that the oem's were not available and there was a weight difference.

O.P. .....wrong forum. There is a wheel and tire forum, and this doesn't have anything to do with a ZL1 if you're talking about your 2013 2SS

The 2013 Warranty Manual states:

Tire Coverage
The tires supplied with your vehicle are covered by General Motors against defects in material or workmanship under the bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage. Wear-out is not considered a defect, and it may occur before the vehicle warranty expires. In this case, the owner is responsible to purchase replacement tires, or seek coverage solely from the tire manufacturer. For vehicles within the bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage, defective tires will be replaced on a prorated adjustment basis according to the following mileage-based schedule:

Mileage Replacement Percentage Covered by GM

0-12,000 100%

12,001-36,000 Sliding scale starting at 67% at 12,001, proportionately falling (1.96%/1,000 miles) to 20% at 36,000 miles

36,001-50,000 20% (Buick and Cadillac Only)


36,001+ 0% (Chevrolet and GMC Only)


50,001+ 0% (Buick and Cadillac Only)

You should be worried about 22 psi. Any side to side differences in excess of 2-3 lbs is going to create handling anomolies.

Awesome. That makes me feel a little better. Going to get it checked out in the morning.

Very strange. Very slow leak, only seems to come down when the car is stationary. Only lost 2 PSI over a 400 miles trip back to PA. Drops dramatically overnight.
