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.

Rims have a engineering defect- they collect mud around a one inch gap around outside rim- this keeps front end out of line and cannot be kept in line- both wheel bearings have been replaced and I am on 3rd set of tires- I have complained since bought truck.

  • miles
Events last week, one of our 2005 Silverado's (has 40,000 miles), while driving on the interstate had a serious tire blow out. It tore completely apart. We have pictures to document the condition of the tire. The rim of the truck was damaged because of the tire blow out. After the tire blew out, the truck was completely on the rim. Luckily, the driver was not injured. This was a very serious incident, but he was able to pull onto the shoulder and not damage the truck any further. The tire was a Bridgestone dueler A/T. under the select tire size the correct information is 26570R17. I was unable to put this information in that box. Failure the tire blew out. What was done to correct the failure we had the rim repaired and the 4 tires replaced.
