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.

Driving at low speed in downtown macon, right front tire blew out. Sidewall had 0.5 inch slit and obviously was beginning to "separate" (I could see what looked like a thread). Tires were just balanced/rotated week of April 10, 2006. Tread looks ok. Could see "deterioration" around entire tire sidewall above lettering and below tread. Inspected the inner side of the tire wall and noticed same deterioration in same area (rubber was cracked in defined area completely around the tire).
