Front end problems (revised July 2016)
By rockenroller on
Vehicle2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2LT 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)
ReviewI have replaced the front 20" Pirellis on warranty due cupping at 30,000KM, everything was done at the time to ensure that this problem was corrected, ie:front & rear alignment, balance etc. All was well for a while but I now have the same issue with cupping at relatively the same mileage interval (60K) I believe the front struts are not heavy enough to handle the force the large wheels exert, I am going to look at upgrading front end components and replacing shocks with top of the line when the tires are in need of replacement. I think GM dropped the ball on adequate design strength on the Camaro, but I guess that can be forgiven, its off warranty now so too bad so sad. Its still a great ca.
I have purchased continental tires and they are a far superior tire. Other than traction, the Pirrellis are absolute trash. Since my purchase of the continentals I have no more cupping/ vibration issues, I don't have to replace them every 15,000km and that's running them bald. I have 40k on the conties and they are still handling perfectly and the wear is negligible. The Tire rack is a great business to buy rubber.
