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.

Mastercraft "sensys" tires. 215/70R15. A complete set of four tires had the treads separate. Resulting in a potentially very dangerous situation. When a complaint was filed with the wholesale supplier williams tire (of 3995 dorchester road, charleston, SC. 843-554-0700 fax=5541334) they stated they have not had any other complaints---but they confused me with someone else who had also complained---leading me to realize that there have been other complaints about this matter. I feel that my 4 tires cannot be the only ones. There must be more of these dangerous tires on the road.
