It is a export requirement only. And only for flat land towing. The bumber system was not designed to withstand, pulling
you out of a ditch or up the incline of a flatbed. It was too expensive to make fascia's with
and without tow hook hole covers. So everyone gets one. If it was meant to use as a towing
device, we would have included a tow hook. Do what you want, but I ain't using them.
They are also used for ocean tie down.
The same thread is currently on the CTS forum. Now everyone here will be screamimg,
WHERE'S MY TOW HOOK!!!!!!! I CAN'T LIVE W/O MY TOW HOOK!!!!!!!

^^ HAHA. I remember the huge to-do about the tow hooks. The frackin' sky was falling over that one.
