Has anyone else had a problem with the tires on the LTZ? I had one replaced and then replaced that replacement early on. Last week they rotated the tires and problems showed up on the sensors. When I took it in there is a problem with road force again on a tire and it is to be replaced. Can I really trust these tires long term?
I had just thought that the early problems had all been fixed---to the point that I hesitated to let them change anything.....including tire position.

I'm assuming you have Good Years on your car. I've had problems with nearly every set I've ever owned (all on new cars). The current set on my SS are doing well so far but I'm not convinced on Good Years quality just yet. I would also assume your problems are being fixed under warranty. I would make sure you're documenting everything so that if/when they claim you're out of coverage, you'll have grounds to get a better replacement. You may also want to check to see if there's any type of lemon law clause for tires.

I do have Good Years. I had never had problems with tires before, but this is becoming very frustrating. The car in general caused great grief to begin with----I was beginning to think it was worth keeping, but if rotating tires creates a problem I don't want to even think what might be down the road.

I'm about 1 month into my 2006 laser blue metallic SS, and I freakin' love this car. Anyway, the purpose of my post is to see if anyone out there has put custom wheels on their 2006 Impala, and if so what sizes w/what size tires? I've searched this forum and haven't been able to see anything about custom wheel applications for this car, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have thought about the same thing but i think if i was going to do it i would get the rims from GM or have them recomend some that fit and have them put them on due to all the sensors and computers

Yeah I was worried too, so I called the service department where I bought the car, and they told me that the TPMS sensor was simply "strapped" to the inside of the wheel and that most "reputable" aftermarket wheel/tire places would know how to install them on new wheels. And here's the good part, he said that getting custom wheels wouldn't have any affect on my warranty.

I agree, I have seen their wheel accessory display and it is pretty substantial. I would be that they would have custom wheel that fit on this car.
