Check out the directionals, and the "mail-slot" scoop.
Crazy the resemblance they share, isn't it?

Sorry...you're correct. I should have looked at it again before I commented. I thought I remembered it being on the left.

Sorry Head but I have to disagree about rotation. Maybe it's not necessary on most cars but it is on 4X4 with independent front suspension. Wide tires on independent suspensions have a tendency to "cup", particularly on the inside tread surface. I've had several rigs that this is an inherent problem, not specific to any particular car maker. It is recommended to rotate front to rear every 3-5000 miles. Maybe we have a tire salesman on here somewhere that can confirm this.

I've seen other comments on here about the difference in tire size from front to rear on the Camaro preventing rotation. If tire "cupping" is the reason to rotate tires then it wouldn't do any good to rotate on a Camaro since cupping is caused by independent suspension and the Camaro is independent all the way around. The only wear you would even out by rotating is wear on the corners of the tread caused by side forces during turning. The only benefit you would get from rotation is to have all four tires rounded on the corners, if you consider that a benefit.

Under normal driving conditions front tires wear faster due to cornering (steering) side force on the front. Rear tires aren't exposed to nearly as much side force, they will last much longer, provided you're not doing burnouts every two miles. If you think about it in those terms, by not rotating rear to front, the rears will last signifigantly longer compared to the fronts wearing quicker. It's not necessary to replace all four tires at the same time. Therefore if the fronts wear faster but the rears last longer, it evens out in the long run. It shouldn't cost any more for tire maintenance in a given time frame. Just my opinion and my logic, doesn't mean it will work for everyone, or for every vehicle. All of us drive differently in different conditions on different roads.

Your logic may be flawed here.

The fronts will wear on the edges faster, especially if you drive agressively.

The rears will wear all the way across faster as that's where the power is getting to the ground.

I predict you'll have worn edges on the front, bald rears, and thus need to replace all 4.

However, with the power and torque of this car, I'm still gonna say the rears will wear out before the edges on the front.

The fronts on my Yukon 4x4 wear way faster then my backs and I have to rotate once a year.

They are amazingly similar. GM has set the par for accurate concepts, or at least living up to them.
