Earlier in the year, General Motors experienced a supplier issue wherein its LPO-level 22-inch wheel options were made unavailable to order, as GM Authority was the first to report. Now, some of those 22-inch wheel options for the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 are once again available to order.
- 22-inch 6-Spoke Low Gloss Black Wheels with Machined Accents (SEV)
- 22-inch Bright Chrome wheels (SF1)
- 22-inch Carbon flash metallic wheels (SEZ)
Each wheel listed is offered as an LPO-level option, which means they are delivered to and installed by the dealer, rather than installed on the vehicle when it is initially produced.
The 22-inch wheels listed above can be ordered for LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country trim levels. Previously, GM Authority reported that the 22-inch 6-spoke Low Gloss Black wheels with machined accents (RPO code SEV) were once again available, but only for certain trim levels, specifically LTZ and High Country trims, but not LT and RST. Now, the 22-inch 6-spoke Low Gloss Black wheels with machined accents are once again available on all four trim levels, just as they were prior to the supplier constraint issue first reported earlier in the year.
So far, the supplier constraint issue has affected the availability of GM’s 22-inch wheel options for not only the Chevy Silverado 1500, but also the GMC Sierra 1500, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Suburban, GMC Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade.
After the initial report on the supplier constraint issue for GM’s 22-inch wheel options, GM Authority provided a follow-up report revealing that the 22-inch wheels had been delivered from their respective manufacturing facilities in China, but were sitting in stacks of containers in the Port of Los Angeles waiting to clear customs.
According to on source familiar with the matter, the wheel containers were stacked so high, they looked like a “skyscraper.”
