Inner rear tires wearing out.

So i noticed my rear inner tires tread is wearing out. i have 5k miles so im kinda pissed off- my question however is, will chevy warranty a camber adjust or new tires?

600+ $ is a lot for a factory mistake in my opinion and though i caught it quite early its still noticeable...

AND on a side subject, what other sizes can i run on the rears that might be better wear rating/ cheaper (im in kansas and its often quite cold here so im fine with the non summer's.)

Brandonmos,

Sorry to hear about your rear inner tire tread wearing out. Your bumper-to-bumper warranty (if in effect) covers defects in materials or workmanship pending an official diagnosis at a GM certified dealership. I would be happy to schedule an appointment for you. Feel free to PM me at your earliest convenience if you want to move these matters forward.

All the best,

William R.

Corvette Grand Sports experienced this same issue and many owners had success in having the tires replaced and alignment under warranty.

Michelin Pilot Super Sport(Max Performance Summer), this will probably be the next tire to go on my 1LE. I will drive my truck if it is snowing. For an A/S tire I don't know what others may be running. Good luck getting your tire issue resolved.

To the OP, is it both tires or only one tire that is worn?

To JJKj: do you know if a TSB was issued?

No TSB and not everyone was treated the same by their dealer or GM. Some owners had them replaced with no effort and others had to fight to get it done. I'd post a link, but it's on a competing Corvette sight so I don't know if it's allowed. However if you go to the large "Corvette forum" .com and do a search in the C6 General Discussion area, you'll find tons of info.

Im hoping to get the same treatment they did- with pics its quite obvious (still havent had a chance) so im thinking in person itll be a no- brainer to the tech that its factory camber being screwy

I've also read this is one of the reasons to have the alignment done/checked at about the 1000 mile mark. Many people have reported the alignment needing to be corrected.

Update on the tires: Went to the service center and had to make one during the week so they can consult gm's "sport tire wear expert" whatever the f that means. Good news is they did see the issue and will realign and most likely get me a new set of good years for uneven/ unatural wear due to factory misalignment. couldnt be happier
