I was checking my spare to see what type of spare. It's a compact. There as cracks in between the treads all the way around tire. They are big enough to stick my fingernail into. I called the dealer and they said bring it ,but they don't have one in stock. We bought the truck on Oct. 25,2015. As anyone else have this problem?

Sounds like the replacement should on GM's dime. The spare on a brand new truck should not be dry rotted already.

I certainly hope this is not a problem across the board........ demonstrates some poor quality control

I went to the dealer and if I hear "Never saw a tire like that before" one more time I am going to scream. They didn't know what to do because no one had ever seen cracks in between the tread . The GM came out and said "Go get one from a truck on the lot and replace it."So I guess someone is going to be buying a truck with no spare.

I'm sure they'll replace the one they "loaned" from another vehicle before it sells. Most drivers don't even think about checking a tire's age when they swap rubber. The digits are stamped in the sidewall indicating week/year (e.g. 0707 = 7th week of 2007). It would be interesting to know the age of your spare...??

Funny, I asked about the date code on the other site.
He checked. I believe it was early '15 if I remember what he wrote.
