Took the car to the dealer had them check it out and check alignment. They stated that it's due to the tire size. I didn't buy that since I bought it in April and it just started making that noise. They cleaned the rotors based on a bulletin they have that they need to be cleaned every maintnence schedule but the noise I was getting from that was a clicking sound. It still is happening could this be due to the cold weather and the hard rubber sliding when turning the wheels all the way left or right when reversing? 2011 CTS-V coupe auto.

Normal. It's the tires. Do a search, there are a few threads about it.

Yep. Always ask HERE first instead of the dealer. Due to the suspension geometry and construction of the PS2 tires, it's a normal phenomenon...

Different tires will cure it, but I love the PS2s and wouldn't swap for such a small issue...

Mine only does it when I cut the wheel all the way. But I back out wide so I'm on the ride side of the road. So if it's an issue or annoys you, only go 75%-90%.
