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.

The contact stated the tread separated from the left rear tire. This happened on a rental car that the contact's husband was driving. The tire dealer could not determine the cause of the failure. Updated- the consumer struggled to maintain control of the vehicle, however he did managed to bring the vehicle to a safe stop.

I run a rental car co. In the past 6 months I have had 5 of the Firestone S4S steeltex radial 16 inch tires, that the tread had rolled off the 15 pass van, someone is going to get hurt bad.. I went to the local Firestone store and all they want to do is make an adjustment on the tires that failed, but I have this tire on all 7 of my vans and I am afraid to rent them out... I need some help from Firestone to replace all of these tires...help me before someone gets hurt.
