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.

The contact owns a 2008 Audi A4 with pirelli tires, line size 235/45R/17, the original tires since purchase. The contact stated that the tire pressure warning light would illuminate sporadically. The vehicle was taken to a tire service center where all four tires were inflated to the correct tire pressure but to no avail. The tires continued to lose air pressure without there being any damage to the tires. The dealer advised that the tire tread was extremely low at a rating of five. The tires were not replaced. The contact stated, based on her research that the tires were not recommended for the snow or extremely harsh weather. She was concerned with the safety of the tires with winter approaching. The failure and current mileage was 18,300.

I bought 2008 A4 on late December of 2008. Car came with the pirelli P6 four seasons tires..owned the car for 3 months now have 3600miles on the car.. first had 2 tire damages after driving on minor bumpy road at 25mph.. 1 tire got punctured on the sidewall 1 had bubbles on it.. went back to the dealership ordered the same set of tires and replace them.. after 2 weeks, had another blow out on the same exact spot on the side wall with same damage.. then again week later.. on NJ turnpike at high speed had sudden blow out..which was resulted from sidewall puncture..and again ended up with flat tire and a bubble on the others.. I've noticed the same pattern here first you get bubble easily from normal type of driving going over little bumpy or rough roads.. then all the sudden that bubble blows out, end up getting the blow out or a puncture.. I contacted pirelli tires several times and they denied on defective tire on this specific model.. they said they had nothing to do with blow outs cause from road hazards.. when the tire it self are defective in a way.. they should really recall this tire or get them off the market before someone really gets hurt or killed... thank god I avoided an accident but it was real dangerous.. it could be yourself or your family member.. I find pirelli tires highly responsible on this matter. And Audi America and NHTSA should deal with them.

A4

  • 3,950 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Audi A4. The vehicle has pirelli P6 tires. The contact purchased the vehicle in June of 2008 with the original tires. On September 13, 2008, he started the vehicle and the tire pressure warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. He pulled into a gas station and checked the tires. The front driver's side tire was low. The contact placed air in the tire and then heard a slow hissing sound coming from the inner sidewall of the tire. He also stated that when he applied pressure to the top portion of the tire, the inner wall came apart. The manufacturer advised him to go to discount tires so that the failure could be diagnosed. The mechanic performed a diagnostic on the tires, but could not determine the cause of the failures. The tire size was unknown. The current mileage was 4,100 and failure mileage was 3,950.
