Front wheels simply just peel apart in chips. Rear wheels appear to be fine, so this is an issue with turning or friction on the front wheels. The tires chip away through out the entire surface of the thread, leaving voids and gashes on the surface. We drive on paved roads, so there really shouldn't be an issue with excessive wear such as driving on rough roads. I did show this to our local dealer, they claim the vehicle needs an alignment, but keep in mind the vehicle has under 15K miles from the dealer. Already, we can see these tires not even coming close to the warranty thread wear limit. Per dealer, no recalls on our VIN.

The vehicle was taken to huffines Chevrolet (1400 stemmons fwy, lewisville, tx 75067) where it was diagnosed that the tires were out of balance and the front driver's tire needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure persisted.

Just bought a new 2017 black edition. Reg cab short bed. 5.3. shakes from new over 73+ mph. Took it to dealer at 648 miles on 01/19/2018. Purchased new 12/28/2017. They rebalanced all 4 wheels. Still shakes. They put a new driveshaft in and said it was fixed. I picked it up today. Nope. It's worse. Now it begins shake no at 60 and at 74-75 has a pretty dramatic shake. This happens while driving on the interstate. Now I go back again Monday to let them have another go at it.this is a brand new truck.

Noticed after purchase that there is vibration like a bad tire 35-42 mph. Vibration felt in seat, console and steering wheel 58-65 mph. Transmission down shifts hard sometimes feels like being bumped from behind, it also hesitates and jerks after letting off the accelerator and accelerating again between 25-45 mph. When accelerating it surges, jerks and stumbles. Sometimes when accelerating the transmission downshifts and hangs in that gear until you let off the accelerator. Under heavy acceleration there is vibration in the power train and the transmission seem noisy. At 25 mph it shutters like the transmission is in to high of a gear under light acceleration. Returned to waldorf Chevrolet where I purchased it and was told they balanced 2 tires and reset the road force, scanned transmission no codes transmission ok after shop foreman road tested for 21 miles no other repairs needed. Picked it up driving home noticed all the problems were still there and after inspection of my wheels noticed that the wheels were balanced still had the old weights still on the wheels with new weights also. Made another appointment this time to have shop foreman (rick) ride with me to show him what it was doing which we did and left my truck again. After 8 days I am told it was ready I was told they did a pico scope test and the driveshaft was being replaced then only tested it was ok. Checked run out on flanges all within specs. Found the right rear tire bad. They put steel wheel from another truck on and road tested with no change. They drove another truck and it rides the same. Even has the shutters on hard acceleration. Said they called GM tac back and they don¿T see a problem with this. Written documents be sent via mail. Made another appointment
