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.

Goodyear allegra P205 75R15 sidewall separation and cracking lead to blowout. Inner sidewall showed cracking and rippling as though chords were broken. Only 25,000 miles as my daily driver, no heavy loads.

Any sharp turn at low speeds activates the ABS. I.e turning into a parking space. The dealer said it was because the tires were old. The tire store says the tires are fine. I have read on the web about others having this problem too.

We had a flat tire due to a nail and took it to a local repair shop. He said he would not patch the hole because both rear tires where showing tread separation and he did not want to be responsible for an accident when the tire failed. I went to a uniroyal dealer and they would only credit me 40% of the cost of new tires. They are defective tires and I do not feel responsible to pay to have a defective product replaced. We obviously need these replaced immediately as we are traveling to Florida with a trailer this Sunday and I am not sure what to do. Am I entitled to have these replaced free or not. The tire tread is in excellent condition and should not need to be replaced at this time. (tiresize: P20575R15)( dot number: Tire size: P20575R15 )

Front tires are too big for truck causing tires to rub on sway bar and to wear on the sidewall of both tires. Qcaw
