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.

All four of my tires have had leaks since new. Had them checked several times to no avail. I think that my tiger paws are defective and maybe dangerous to keep using. I only have 32,000 miles on them. Also they have been developing cracks on the sidewalls.

S-10 Pickup

  • 60,000 miles
While driving my 2003 Chevy S10 the assembly that holds the spare tire underneath of the vehicle disengaged when the cable snapped. The tire became wedged between the road and the rear bumper causing my vehicle to fishtail. No accident occurred despite the tire bouncing across 4 lanes of traffic and down a side street where it came to rest against a curb. The "priority" dealership said this was not covered by the warranty. This is the 3rd case I have heard about this happening in my area.

Point 1. - events were un-noticed sidewall "dry-rotting" of the Goodyear Wrangler rt/S P235/75R15 tires for 21000 miles.....theses tires were 'original equipment' on a new 2003 Chevy S-10 crew cab 4WD truck. The "failed" tire was on the front, drivers side. Simple highway driving at 60 mph (rt.1 N., Delaware), dry conditions, 65 - 70 degrees temperature. Tires were religiously 'rotated' at 6500 - 7500 miles. Point 2. - tire lost air, eventual "flat" during 60 mph highway drive. There was not a whole lot of "pulling" involved. Attention was given to me by a "passing" driver, upon which time I pulled off to the shoulder of the highway. Point 3. - changed the "failed" tire with the spare tire (same model), eventually replaced the "suspect" tire with a new same model (ergo, two new tires on the front).inspected the three other original tires and noticed "dry rot" on all tires ranging from medium 'bad' to just-as-'bad' as the failed tire. Goodyear personnel acknowledged to me that they see this 'dry-rotting' quite often on these tires. Old tire is available for inspection...there is no "road hazard" involved...the 'leaks' are definitely from the "dry rotted" splits in the sidewall close to the thread. This is a very dangerous tire...I keep remembering Bridgestone and Ford Explorer from a few years ago!!

The vehicles original equipment tires are not balanced properly and resulted in "wobbling" while driving. The dealer attempted to balance them four times since purchased but the problem still exists (uniroyal P205/75R15, 1,000 miles on tires).
