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.

Firestone tire P245/70R17 108S M+ S destination le for your information while driving the inside lane of I-20 here in Alabama August 23, 2014 at a speed of approximately 65 miles an hour when my right front tire blew. Fortunately I was able to maintain control of the vehicle and get off the interstate. The tire blew out just below the thread, outside wall. Hole is approximately the sizes of a twenty five cent piece. I had an experience tire professional look at the tire; he said that the tire was defective because of the way it blew. The other three tires on this vehicle are firestones identical to this one. I am worried about the safety of driving the auto with these tires? the tire is on a 2008 Chevy Silverado pickup that is driven for pleasure. (not a work truck) less that 10,000 miles a year. All four original tires were replaced with firestones P245/70R17 108S. I would estimate these tires to have less than 20,000 miles on them.

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 hd equipped with Goodyear Wrangler silent armor tires, size LT225/75/R17. The contact stated that the tread separated from the front passenger tire while driving 70 mph. The failure caused the bumper cap to be torn from the vehicle as the vehicle traveled erroneously across several lanes. In addition, the fender and passenger side door were also damaged. The contact was able to install the spare tire and the vehicle was taken to the dealer. The dealer advised that they were not familiar with the type of failure and offered no further assistance. The manufacturer was not notified. The tire failure mileage was 10,000. The vehicle failure mileage was 125,000.

Right front tire blew out, when we went to have them replaced we noticed a bump in all four tires, upon calling general we were told to take the truck to sears (authorized dealer) to look over the tires, sears confirmed that there was a belt separation in all four tires. We were told by general tires they would give us a 60% replacement on one tire. We then called General Motors to report the problem they told us we needed to take the truck to the dealer where the truck was purchased. After leaving the truck all day the service manager reported that the replaced tire was not an original tire (it was the one we had fixed due to blow out) and that it should not be warranted. At this time nothing has been done to fix any of the tires. We were told by a representative at General Motors that there were other reports of problems with these tires. A second representative denied that other problems has been reported. There is definitely a manufacturers defect in all four tires.
