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.

Currently I have the general ameritrac tires on my vehicle ( 245 70R17), I am writing because I am concerned about the tires that it on my 2005 Chevy Silverado. I have noticed vibrations at speeds over 80 mph (on a rare response to a fire call in personal vehicle). Also the tires have not held up at all I noticed uneven tread wear at 10,000 miles and with rotation and balancing it seems to be worsening, the tire tread currently (31,000 miles) is withering to the point it is unsafe and seems to want to hydroplane very easily ( done this new also). I have others with the ameritracs and some have worn better but seem to have the same hydroplane characteristics. I am having these replaced with a different brand asap.

Have had feathering on front tire edges on 05' Chevrolet Z-71. Two alignments and two sets of Bridgestone dueler A/T's later truck still has a vibration at 50 mph. Am still working on the problem, dealer's service advisor has told me his tech.'s can't feel the vibration although when said service advisor road with me on a test drive he had admitted to feeling the vibration. So... can I throw my hands in the air also while sending my monthly payments ?

All car makers of light trucks including the 1500 series (1/2 ton) should be installing lt rated tires of at least 8 ply ratings since the trucks are being sold for and used to haul trailers and heavy loads. In past experience, I have had tire failures from the passenger car tires that came on units that were a result of being too soft on the sidewall for support of cornering and weight shifting.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
The contact started having problems at 1,000 miles with the tires. The tires started feathering on the outside edges. At 2,700 miles the dealer replaced the front tires on 10-6-05. The rear tires also started to feather. The dealership refused to replace the rear tires under warranty. The front end alignment was performed at that time. In regard to the alignment, the camber, caster, toe in, and toe out were all determined out of adjustment on all four sides from the factory. This was determined by the dealership. After the new tires and the front end alignment was done the vehicle still pulled to the left extremely hard.

The tires are out of round and they make the vehicle shimmy. The GM dealers replaced two of the four tires already, but was, suppose to replace all four of the tires. Now the vehicle shimmies again. The dealer had the consumer come in on three different occasions to get information off the tires. Noticed happened on April 30, 2005, and it only has 4685 miles on it.
