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.

The american general 245/70/17 tires on 2009 wore out down to the tires wear bars 2/32 at 16,000miles there was heavy edge wear chuncking pieces of tread.

However they were replaced with american General Grabber H/T which also have to soft of a rubber compound and are wearing out quickly the truck has 26150 miles on it now and the new tires are down to 7/32 with less than 10000 miles on them.
