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.

Sudden tire blow-out on highway. Pressures ok, tires maintained. Approx 75% service life of tire left. Tire was General Grabber aw P265/70R16. Merchants tire did not honor any warranty. Curious if other tires may blow or is this an isolated incident. Tires were purchased at 52K miles, currently 74K miles on vehicle.

I purchased a vehicle,04 Chevy Avalanche, which has a new set of api, spector advanta SUV tires on it from auction direct in raleigh, nc this Aug. The tire size is 265/70R 17. Dot 3eef manf. Date of 10 08, I believe. They will not run smooth at highway speeds from 50 mph to 65-70 mph with some vibration at lower speeds, after extensive balancing including road force balance, they still shake the vehicle very bad at highway speeds, making driving awful, the vehicle has been checked out at action direct's service center, and at sir walter Chevrolet in raleigh, nc, the problem was isolated to the tires. Auction direct will not replace them. Thanks for your help, james arthur jones
