    06 Tahoe with less that 20K miles. I can already hear the cord separating in one of my tires. That tell tale thump-thump-thump. It is very light at this time, can only hear when driving on really smooth black top, but I know from experience it will steadily grow louder with time and millage.

    Here is my dilemma: The noise is so slight that only a picky *ss like me can hear it now. But as I experienced with my Silverado, by the time I roll 40K the tires still look like new but make a really loud thumping noise. New tires cost nearly $200 each so I would like to get as much prorated warranty as possible. Should I go ahead and take to the dealer/tire people now or wait it out?

    Does the dealer warranty tires? I thought that was considered consumables?
    Ya I just noticed your mileage 20000 miles. I would start nagging now.

    I don't believe the dealer will warranty tires but the Tire Manufacturer should. I believe they are covered by the manufacturer just as if you went and bought new from their store. The warranty is prorated according to miles driven on them. I think I'm gonna stop in at the local Bridgestone store and see what they will do.

    The rules on tires keep changing with new cars. I'm not sure I understand anymore. The Chevy website says that tires are included in their new warranty, but what does that mean? Need to see the fine print.

    In my experience, they will take a look at them according to what is wrong. If it's even but excessive wear (specially on the rear) they'll call it too heavy on the throttle... uneven wear they call it an alignment, etc, etc,etc. Now, if the tire is bubbled, starting to seperate, make noise, etc then they cover 100% as a defective tire.
