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.

This involves an oem tire on a 2012 Chevrolet pick up truck, Silverado 1500. I'm a retired automotive engineer. Tire is made by general tire, size P245/75R/17, dot P583 BN1. I am original owner and only driver. This tire has never run over anything but roadway surface. I was traveling on the freeway when the sidewall plies broke internally causing the tire to de-bead. I pulled over to inspect. Tire was smoking from the inside. It was fully ready to catch fire. Copious amounts of smoke. I poured my ice tea down the inside part of rim and backed truck up to slosh ice tea around inside of smoking tire. There are no cuts, stone bruises, or other outside influences. This tire broke its sidewall. You can both see and feel it. Tread and crown at same area are fine. Tire has 6/32" tread remaining. When tire was replaced, there were handfuls of shredded rubber found inside the tire by tire shop. I kept the tire if any rep wants to inspect it. This is very dangerous. This tire failure could have caused a fatality..

This is about the safety issues with a set of Goodyear Eagle ls-2 tires. With only 1300 miles on the vehicle, I have already slid three or four different times, including sliding into the median twice. I have no confidence in these tires to stay on the road or when pulling out or going around a curve. These tires should not be on the road.
