General Mortors has decided that a defect affecting vehicle safety exists in some tires installed as original equipment on certain 2018-2021 Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC trucks and SUVs.

According to the tire manufacturer, Continental Tires the Americas (CTA), the tires may have been over-cured and could experience an unexpected break in the sidewall. This break could lead to sudden loss of pressure or a belt edge separation that could lead to partial or full tread / belt loss. The problem could increase the risk of loss of vehicle control.
