Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

At 31700 miles I noticed a bulge in the sidewall of the left front tire. I replaced both front tires with the identical brand. At 41239 miles, I again noticed a large bulge in the left front tire in the sidewall. I again will have the tires replaced before I have a blow-out. I have read other reviews on this tire and it seems many others have experienced the same problem. It could be quite hazardous if I didn't catch the problem before driving at highway speeds.
