i was reading the new SEMA magazine and there was section on wheels and tires and how the wheels just keep getting "absurdly large". there is one part where it says that 'GM is now voiding warranties on vehicles that have 22's on them.' as soon as i read this i called my local cadillac dealer to ask them if this is true and they said no, i actually called 3 different dealers they all said the same thing, so i called the gm 1 800# for customer service and asked about that, they told me that yes it can void the warraty cause your changing something that didnt come standard on the vehicle and that your modifying it. i also asked what if i get the factory 20's from the platinum edition they said that can also void your warranty cause its not standard. i was just windering if anyone else has heard or read anything about this.
thats complete BS. a void of warranty would warrant something that you altered on the car and if there is a malfunction (problem) with your car, only if the mechanic can prrove that what you altered was the reason for the problem, then ur warranty will be voided. Nothing internal in ur car would possibly go wrong with ur car due to rims....hence utter BS

Re: Is GM really voiding warraties
I was at a GM sponsered event on Sunday, from your dealer you can get 20-22 inch wheels and tires for GM or Caddy trucks, it would be tough to void your warranty with wheels from the dealer, again a lot depends on your dealership, some are much better to deal with than others.
my dealer told me 'probably not'. but they also said, there are wheels and tires approved by gm (like what is sold on gmpartsdirect.com) that will not void the warranty. they said as long as you use gm approved tires on the gm approved wheels, you'd be fine.
Everyone here is forgetting that they cannot void your warranty for ANY aftermarket part, unless THEY can show that the part caused the problem. So the entire burden lays upon their head...Magnuson vs. Moss
