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 last dealership near our home has replaced both front tires, and during our last visit (12/03/01) they replaced all 4 tires!! please help, as we are afraid to drive the truck with our 2 kids in the back seat!!

Tires "cupped" before 8000 mile rotation, transmission- feels like clutch is slipping, has times in nuetral from a stop then slams into gear... motor sounds like a diesel at start up quiets some, yet all this is suppose to be "normal". (tiresize: 235/75/R16)

The tire size is LT245/75R16. There wasn't enough room to fit it all in the space provided. After changing the tire, I found that a lug in the tread was torn from the tire with a one inch tear. It was not a straight line, and it followed the Contour of the side of the lug. This told me that nothing punctured the tire. I haven't contacted Firestone yet. I have the tire and don't want to give it up. I have been displeased with having these tires on my truck, but the dealer wouldn't replace them. Now I've had a failure and I know you have been investigating these tires, and I want to add my name to the list of people with problems, with the hope that I can get all five of my tires replaced. I also am hoping that something can be done that will keep people from getting hurt by these tires. Thank you for your time. David C. bray. (dot number: Vn11bad160 tiresize: Lt24575R16)
