Article: Tire Shortage Currently Impacting Corvette C7 Owners

Owners of some Chevy Corvette C7 models who require replacement rear tires may face delays due to low supply, GM Authority has learned.

Here’s what happened: all tire manufacturers were affected by factory shutdowns in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, tire supply worldwide fell to sub-optimal figures. Once production started back up, tire manufacturers began to focus on replenishing stocks at resellers and distributors.

As it stands, tire makers currently seem to be prioritizing refilling stocks of mainstream tire sizes, rather than the comparatively niche sizes used on the C7 Corvette. As a result, most tire companies that typically supply tires for the C7 are either not producing tires that would fill most variants, or have only recently started to do so.
