2001 Corvette: Service Bulletin: Info - Proper Tire Pressure
Source: Chevrolet Dealer Service Bulletin
Subject: Info - Proper Tire Pressure
Model Year: 2001 Passenger Cars and Trucks
This bulletin is being revised to correct/remove tire inflation pressure shown for F-Cars with 17" wheels. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 00-00-90-002 (Section 03-Tire & Wheels).
Tires MUST be set to the recommended inflation pressure during the PRE-DELIVERY INSPECTION (including the spare tire).
Ride, handling and road noise concerns may be caused by improperly adjusted tire pressure. The first step in diagnosis of these concerns is to verify that the tires are inflated to the correct pressures. The recommended tire inflation pressure is listed on the vehicle’s tire placard. The tire placard is located on the driver’s side front or rear door edge, or the rear compartment lid. Do not use the tire pressure indicated on the tire itself as a guide. Always inspect and adjust the pressure when the tires are cold. Vehicles that have different pressures for the front and the rear need to be adjusted after tire rotation.
Improper tire inflation may result in any or all of the following conditions:
- Premature tire wear
- Harsh ride
- Excessive road noise
- Poor handling
- Reduced fuel economy

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
