Summer tires. If stored below 40 this can happen.

Most likely no. Tires are a wear item, so they will probably not cover it. As stated above, these are summer tires and may crack if subjected to temps below 40 degrees. You said that you stored it during the winter, where did you store it? That can play a big role in longevity of your vehicle and its components.

This is my 5th Corvette and my 2nd Grand Sport. This is the first one I have owned that required any special care of the tires. I put the car away in November and just got it out the end of March. I did not drive it in the cold.
My point is no one told me about the special care of the tires. There was no paper work that advised me of such treatment.
The dealer didn't know that the tires had to be stored in a warm environment.
How many other owners are not aware of this situation?
This is a SAFETY issue as far as I am concerned.
The dealer the car came from was in Iowa and they didn't store it inside.

THIS is why people should read the owners manual.

Exactly. Don't blame GM because you were too lazy to spend 15 minutes reading the manual.
