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.

2009 BMW 328I. Consumer writes in regards to issues with vehicle tires the consumer stated the vehicle came equipped with the extra cost sport package which included 18 inch sport wheels and lower profile tires than the base car. The tires were Michelin run flat tires which were installed by BMW so that they could avoid the weight of the spare tire. There was no spare tire, jack, inflation device or other backup. The tires had routinely failed due to an inherent defect, before their normal service life was complete. The tires failed in as little as 8,00 miles and a couple have lasted until they were at 3/32, still before the normal service life was complete. The reason for the failure, was due to a sidewall bulge that developed in the area between the tire bead and the sidewall. After the bulge began, a tear developed and after the tear began, the tires at that point of the bulge became unsafe to drive on at any speed. The consumer had to replace all four tires and the right rear tire twice.
