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.

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.
