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.

: the contact stated vehicles tires blew out on several occasions. During one of the incidences, the vehicle hit a pothole on the highway traveling at 65 mph before the tire blew out. On another occasion, the vehicle was traveling 35 mph in residential area when a pothole caused another blowout. The tires have been replaced more than nine times by an independent tire company who determined problems were with the sidewalls. The contact expressed that the tires are defective.

My husband has 2 sets of tires one for summer and one for winter. The summer tires are the ones with the defect. The tires have only been used for 2 summers and the car is not driven a lot. The tires still have about 60% thread on them. Recently we noticed that the tires are bubbled on the inside and previously one cracked. I don't know what to do. I feel like the tires should still be good for another 2 years, but with the bubbles I'm afraid they'll blow up. The tires are dunlop W10 18" 235/4018. Please help, I've looked on their website and there is not contact. The store where we purchase them is closed.

Vehicle had 2 Goodyear tires, where the sidewall had blown out while driving at a moderate speed. Old tires were thrown out, therefore the D.O.T. # for the tires were unavailable. Provide further details.

325 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 12,850 miles
Driving on interstate-95 in New York I felt a vibration start in the back of the car which grew very quickly. I pulled over to find the right rear tire flat. I found the tire had a slit in the side wall half way around the tire with a gap between the tread and the body core of the tire. It appears that the tread started to separate form the tire. I check the tire pressures regularly and keep them at the manufactures recommended pressures.
