GM Does it again...

Postby spiffy1001 » Mon Sep 14, 2009 12:37 pm

2010 Camaro does not include a spare tire. Has a patch kit. The patch kit is not recommended for Z rated tires...

May the best car win!

If you've got the cash to lay down for a Camaro SS, then $300+ for a replacement tire is not that big of a concern... and is anyone driving a car with such a big engine really concerned about the fuel economy, that a spare tire would drag you down???

And that little dent should buff right out...

The fuel economy may not be important to the consumer but it's extremely important to GM. Fleet mileage is government regulated.

My Cobalt SS had the "option" for a spare tire... soo I think we will see less of them unless you pay.

The whole not covered under warranty if the pump kit is used is fine. If you get a flat by a nail your screwed on the warranty anyway..why is that even brought up as a argument?

No spare, nothing new... The Corvette doesn't come with a spare, just run flats, you get a hole, you get a new tire...
