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.

2007 BMW 550 Owner Comments

Have had this BMW 550I for about 2 years, and in that time I've had 3 bent wheels and one cracked wheel. I have cars with similar, aluminum alloy rims and lower profile tires on them - and have not bent or cracked a wheel on the other cars. The rear wheel cracked, but it was along the inner edge - and was not noticed. The only reason it was checked was because the tire kept leaking air. Luckily it was caught before the wheel cracked even more (it cracked for about 1" long from the rim edge to just past the tire bead). Updated 12/02/10 updated 12/07/10
