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.

I have been complaining to BMW for 20,000 miles about noisy tires. They kept telling me that it needs rotation and did so. There was alot of road noise coming from the tires and BMW did not assume responsibility. Then my husband got into an accident (just a fender bender) on Sept 8 or 9th of 2007 when the tires were making alot of noise and hit a cement pole. Insurance company told us there is a defective problem in the car regarding the "toe adjustment" and to why the tires are worn sooo badly. It is a chasis problem and not a tire problem. The front 2 tires were on the verge of a blowout. I have contacted BMW and have failed to comply and said I have to pay for new tires and alignment. There are thousands of complaints on this issue while I was researching on the internet. BMW needs to find the problem and replace my tires and fix the problem in toe adjustment.

Excessive tire wear on 2006 BMW 330I. Firestone says that the cupping of the tires (starting at about 8K miles) causes less traction on the road and will get worse. The tires started to make load noise at about 8K miles and they now have 13K miles on them and the noise level is very bad. I have contacted BMW several times and they say that they will consider replacing the tires only if I will agree to pay half of the cost(about $600 my cost for 4 tires). I feel that this is a safety issue only with this brand and type of tire and Firestone needs to replace the tires. The tires in question are Bridgestone turanza EL42, size 205/55/R16 run flats. This cupping on these tires causes the tire to loose contact with the road and may cause an accident on wet roads.

Tires are extremely noisy at low vehicle speeds-2006 BMW 330I turanza EL42 run flat tire (rft), P225/45R17: I was told today by Firestone that the cupping of the edges of all four tires will cause lack of traction in the winter months. Therefore, he suggested that all four tires should be replaced.
