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.

2011 BMW 550I xdrive with M-sport package has Goodyear Eagle ls-2 245/40R19 98V tires. The right front tire developed 3 minor bubbles on sidewall and the left front developed one major bubble and 2 small bubbles on sidewall within 3,500 miles and both tires need to be replaced. I've driven on the same roads for over ten years and never had any issues with other tires, but within 6 months of owning this car, I have had serious problems with these tires. These tires are clearly defective and should be recalled.

Major issues with a specific tire. New 5 series from BMW, if get 19" wheels come with substandard tires - Goodyear Eagle LS2 run flats. They bubble and fail at an alarmingly high rate. Lost one tire within a month of purchase. Got rid of them before they could cause me any more problems.

Driving my commute, that I previously had traveled on low profile tires in my previous BMW for 3 years without incident, I got a bubbled sidewall on my brand new Goodyear run flat tire. Upon doing some research I found out these BMW oem tires were failing all over the us. It seems the tires were only spec'd on the sport package with the all wheel drive option. The tires are unavailable do to I assume the large amount of failures. BMW put a size on the car that in the oem spec doesn't exist by any other tire manufacture. The fix was to give me 2 summer tread tires until the oem tires were available. Although BMW never recommends mixing summer and all season rubber.
