    I was thinking about pushing for the two piece rotors, but I figured I would give them a chance to fix it... Ideally I would opt for a slotted two piece rotor, but while under warranty I'll give them some time to fix the problem the way they choose...

    other than cosmetics the "2 piece" rotors gain you nothing in performance and does not seem to fix the clicking. SO if the clicking isnt fixed by them, why complain, if the lugs works you should be happy.

    I like the way they look better, that's why I'd push for them, plus have brand new rotors too.

    Hopefully they will have the new lug nuts in stock, otherwise it will be a wasted trip.

I get there first thing in Friday morning and while checking in the car I tell the service writer about the new TSB and ask him to confirm they have all parts required before I leave, he tells me the fix is new rotors.

    So the whole day goes by and no call from dealer, I called them an hour before closing and ask if my car was done, well guess what, they tell me what I already told them two times already, the new fix is lug nuts and they need to order them. So basically I drove down there for nothing and now have to return again in a week...
    Pphilthy, I'm very sorry to hear that you experienced this! I realize how frustrating that must have been; please don't hesitate to email me at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com if you would like me to contact your dealer at any point and follow up on your behalf!

    I'm available to similarly assist anyone who is having concerns regarding their clicking wheel concerns, so feel free to email or send a direct message to me anytime and I can investigate for you!

It may end up being that for a 100% fix some cars may need both. What I can't figure out is if the noise is caused by aluminum to aluminum contact why didn't they develop some kind of very tough thin gasket to go between the wheel and rotor.
    I was thinking of the gasket idea myself. My thought was to buy just a large square gasket material and cut it to to fit inside of the rim where it meets with the rotor. Clean rim and rotor and install gasket on rim, mount rim and torque; see if that works. Seems like this would be the cheapest and maybe the best fix for GM. I could be wrong though. I'm no engineer.

    Actually, that's not totally accurate...

    2 piece deal with heat better...

    I agree with the gasket idea also. Someone (if not GM) ought to make up some of these gaskets to sell and we could replace them ourselves if needed. (Similar to the spare tire by Eurotek).

    Two questions about the new lug nuts:

    1. Do the new lugs look like the old ones or will there be a mismatch between front and rear wheels?
    2. What do they do if you have wheel locks?

    The lugs don't look any different and they are not mismatch. As far as wheel locks I'm not sure I don't have wheellocks , that's a good question though I'd be curious to know that myself.

    I just noticed my wheels clicking today. Now I just keep listening out for it and it's annoying. I'm going to contact
    the dealer on Monday see if they have the lug nuts in stock.

    Yeah definitely call first, they ordered mine last Friday and they didn't come in until Friday morning on the following. But, you might get lucky .My dealer doesn't carry many parts for the V, but I think these are just standard I was surprised I had to wait so long.
