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.

Right rear Goodyear conquest tire, serial number M6xoedwr447, exploded disintegrating the right rear splash guard, estimated damage $195 plus $125 for the replacement tire. Tires were not origianal equipment and plenty of treadware remaining. Per the Goodyear mechanic, the following took place within 10 miles and less than 20 minutes: I picked up a nail, threw the nail which allowed the air to escape, when the tire pressure became too low the tire came off the rim and exploded. I pulled over to the shoulder of the road due to the extremely loud noise that occurred when the tire exploded. Despite what the Goodyear dealer or Goodyear customer service said in their reponse to my E-mail, I believe there is something wrong with this tire and should not have had to pay full price for the replacement. I am obtaining information on filing a claim and will file one once it is received. I have pictures of the explosion result. My office E-mail, all lowercase letters is: (tiresize: P22560R16)( dot number: Tire size: P22560R16 )

The tires on the car began to lose air pressure in a short period of time - about every two weeks several of the tires would lose over 15 lbs pressure. I would refill the tires to the proper pressure - than in the month of March 01 I was driving ona smooth road when the car began to feel mushy - I stipped at a filling station and discovered the rear tire was nearly flat. I decided to purchase new tires and went to a tire shop and as they dismounted the tire which was nearly flat the problem was discovered - severe corrosion of the inner rim between the chrom and the steel - the surface was so rough that the tire shop refused to install new tires on the wheels and stated that they were too coroded to be cleaned. I went to my Cadillac dlr to have the warranty performed to replace the coroded rims - I left the car for the service. Te same day the service department called stating the car was ready and that four new rims were installed on the car with the original tires. I picked the car up after hours and noticed that the wheels were not new but perhaps were used but in good condition. I reviewed my invoice for the warranty work and found that the wheels were not replaced but merely cleaned and reinstalled on my car. The corrosion will continue and at some point will deflate my tires - this time perhaps at a higher speed. Ut some lost air faster than others. While driving on a smooth road I noticed.
