When I looked at my tire, I saw a small fire inside the tire. My car was towed 55 miles to nearest Chevrolet dealer. I had my left front brake caliper, hub, rotor, brake hose, brake pads and resurfaced rotors. A new left front tire and $2,700 my car was able to be driven again. All the technicians that saw my car were amazed that I didn't lose the tire. They were amazed to see it hanging on by a thread. I understand that gm has several problems with their brake calipers and hub. I do not trust the right side so I am replacing that caliper as well.
