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.

Concern with pirelli tire model P235/45R17-pirelli P6.- I have a total of 28,000 miles on an Audi A4. I have had two blowouts and three tires that have needed to be replaced. Specifically, the sidewalls of the tires bubble out in weak spots. Last week my wife was driving my car and got a flat on the sidewall, and I noticed when fixing her tire that now another one of the tires has a bubble. I will once again have to replace two tires. I believe this is a dangerous problem that could result in loss of control of a vehicle. I am not a high performance driver. I drive for work and family related matters only so this problem is not related to excessive driving speeds or harsh handling. I am following this complaint with a complaint directly to pirelli and to Audi of America. If desired I can forward a digital photo of the typical bubble. Bruce hendee
