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.

September,03 I had one Bridgestone dueler LT285/75R16 separate, causing serious vibration. Replaced tire with same type tire and remaining tires were inspected by dealer for safety and re-mounted. Next week dueler exploded causing $4200 damage to left side of truck and significant hearing loss. The tire was inspected twice by Bridgestone. First time they said tire indicated that tire struck something. Second time was just a denial as I had asked Bridgestone to mark on the tire where it had hit something. I new it had not. Mr. Sheehan, their insurance adjuster478 7501166, told me they should have paid the claim. I did not include the hearing loss in the claim. Numerous people have informed me of the same problems with dueler tires and bridgestones denial/fraud tactics. Something needs to be done by the us government to prevent deaths and injuries.

My wife took my truck to work. At the end of the day she drove about a half mile and stopped at a stop sign. While waiting for traffic she heard a pop. When she took off the tire was flat. The sidewall blew out. There is a blowout from the rim to the pavement.
