Silverado 1500

  • 3,500 miles


At highway speeds between 58 and 74 mph, there is a vibration that shakes the truck. My first trip to the dealership, they said 3 of the 4 tires needed to be replace, which was covered under warranty. The truck had approximately 3500 miles, when I took it the first time. The problem was stable for a few thousand miles, and then started to get bad, I called and scheduled an appointment, and the truck has been at the dealership for over a week now, and they have replace the one tire that wasn't orginally replaced. They also said they are looking at the exhaust system.

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado high country comes standard with a Goodyear Eagle ls-2, size: P275/55R20. The wet and dry traction of this model of Goodyear tire is poor at best. On wet road surfaces, the tires break traction on corners and under light acceleration. Snow traction is non-existent even though they are mud and snow rated. These tires are a safety hazard.

I have the special rally edition of this truck in which comes with 22" black aluminum rims. After 33K miles and 18 months of ownership with only on road driving. 3 of the 4 low profile rims had to be replaced due to significant cracking. At first the symptom was vibration at highway speed. Then my right front passenger tire would not hold a bead to the rim. During the inspection of the right front the crack was noted and then all four tires were check. This lead to the replacement of 3 out of 4. I'm still waiting for Chevy to clarify if this will be a warranty replacement. All maintenance on the vehicle was done by a authorized dealer.

While in motion, I've noticed a shaking coming from the rear end of my 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 double cab. My truck sits on factory 20 inch rims. I've had the wheels balanced when I replaced the tires. Shaking continues. Shaking more noticeable after reaching speeds of 60 M.P.H. and above. I've been told by the service manager of the dealer I purchased the truck from that it is a known issue but there is no fix or solution. The shaking first started after the truck reached 10,000 miles and has not gotten any better in the past 5,500 miles. The problem is persisting and possibly getting worse.

Silverado 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 12,000 miles
Truck began to have the Chevy shakes about the 12K mile point and has increasingly gotten worse the more mileage the truck gains ( currently 14K miles) I have called and talked to technicians about this and they ensured me that its normal. I've owned several trucks and I have never not been able to go over speeds of 55 without having terrible shakes and wobbles in my truck. Chevrolet needs to address this properly and fix the issue or buy back the trucks that are affected by this issue, when a person spends 50K + on a vehicle this should be the last thing the should have to worry about is feeling safe in their vehicle. I will never buy another Chevrolet product again due to not only this but a number of other issues I have with the truck including hard shifting and extreme lack of power.

Silverado 1500

  • 4,000 miles


My 2015 Silverado 1500 is equipped with Goodyear Wrangler ls-2 tires, in size 265/65R18. When driving in wet weather, taking a mild right or left hand turn can result in complete loss of traction, resulting in the truck spinning 90 to 180 degrees. This happens at low speeds - you do not have to be driving at a speed that most people would deem as unsafe. In wet weather the tires act as though you are driving on ice, very little wet weather traction, resulting in the possibility of loss of control. I have experienced this at least 6 times in the last 3 months, and have little confidence in these tires. I feel they are a safety hazard, and I am concerned that I could be involved in an accident as a result of the lack of wet weather traction with these tires.

My Silverado has developed a vibration around 4-5000 miles from new. The vibration starts around 60mph and increases in intensity up to and beyond 80mph, the legal speed limit in Texas. The vibration can be felt throughout the cabin in the seats, center console, steering wheel, doors and gas pedal. On my last 3+ hour drive I had to stop midway because the vibrations gave me a headache. That's never happened in any other vehicle ever. After 3 visits to the dealer and multiple road force balance and tire replacements later the dealer states the truck is operating normal and is in spec. This is unacceptable for a brand new vehicle and I'm working on taking it to the next level with GM to deal with the problem.

On October 24, 2015 while following my wife home on hwy 182 between West pasco and richland my truck experience what felt like a tire blowout on the right rear wheel. I was traveling the speed limit at 70 mph. The road was level and flat with no debris on the road. I proceeded to change out my tire with the spare, thinking that the tire had a large bolt or nail in it. To my surprise, the tire was intact with no sign of damage. The factory rim had failed. Here are the facts of the situation: ¿2015 Chevrolet Silverado lt Z71 with 12,366 miles 'smooth highway surface on a clear day traveling straight at 70 mph with no debris on the road ¿not hauling or towing 'single occupant in vehicle ¿the tire is intact (not damaged at all) ¿no damage to the right front wheel or tire or any other part of the vehicle 'severe damage to the right rear rim ¿rim impacted the brake system hard enough to bend parts and cause leaking of brake fluid
